Just my two cents, but if this change is breaking things in amaroK,

should be run on most any change but definately when you upgrade a major
sub-component of your system.
I do not see how such a major change can be justified in a minor point
release. For instance, currently amaroK does not work when using a
sqlite database on Debian Sid since they package it with sqlite 3.2.5.
Well in this case it broke all the currently installed applications that
was installed and where MISSUSING the API. We have corrected this now
but it will take a while before we can make a release out of it. In the
meantime distributions that ship a newer sqlite3 will not be able to use
amarok and xmms2.
But it was our fault for not reading the docs correctly.
