Comment (by johnbillion):

 Idea: Upon plugin activation when in WP_DEBUG mode, the plugin is grepped
 for deprecated functions and a warning displayed if any are found.

 The [http://smithsrus.com/downloads/wordpress-upgrade-preflight-check/
 Upgrade Preflight plugin] hunts down potential 2.3 compatibility problems
 by traversing the plugin directory and using `file_get_contents` and
 `strpos` to find problem strings. A similar system could be used on plugin
 activation to hunt down deprecated functions within the a plugin.

 Same thing could also be done for themes (related: #4361).
