In fact, this already HAS happened with recent changes to transaction.scm. Changes to the settings regarding inclusion of transaction detail got changed, forcing me to go through every saved report that I had that used the transaction report as its basis (by the way, there are numerous other standard reports that behind the scenes are based on the transaction report). It was quite a surprise, and there was no warning or guidance given ahead of time.

I ultimately was able to work out the problem and its solution, but it was quite frustrating at the time.
