 Cool, thanks! We should also make this routine part of a new Tools page in

 1.5 and the use of BP_Component ?

 I would like to avoid breaking backward compatibility as much as possible,
 even if it means jumping through hoops. I don't want another 1.5 on our
 hands (though, to be fair, the extent of any potential breakage with my
 proposed changes are far, far less extensive).

 However, we could also consider a more moderate approach, where we
 implement suggestions 1-3 but not 4. A glance at the search results in
 plugins.svn.wordpress.org show that roughly half of the uses of
 'last_activity' would be caught in this way. For those that depend on
 last_activity, as long as the content is mirrored, the remaining plugins
 would continue to *work*, they just wouldn't get the _doing_it_wrong()
 notice. That'd at least buy us more time to notify plugin authors. This
 seems like a fair trade-off to me.
