Those variables that have been added over the growth of PHP are not just
in this new release, but rather they have been added slowly over our
development cycle. A person copying a configuration file say between 2.2.0
and 2.2.6 would face the same problem anyway, just because new variables
have been added.

Possibly we just get around this by documenting the fact that is it not
recommended they use their old configuration file between releases, but
instead copy their settings over to the new file by hand?
