Seeking input for a new tool to verify MySQL upgrades

I’ve had several customers in the last week or so who need a way to verify that their application will work well after an upgrade. I’m seeking input on a new tool to help with MySQL upgrades. Please add comments, either here or on the bug report, or on the mailing list topic.

If someone wants to sponsor this work, that would also be welcomed.
