I loaded our 1.7.9p2 core up under 1.8.0beta3 this morning for the first time, and
got the following messages.

I've seen these once or twice during other tests and didn't pay them any mind, then realized
waitasec, break, try, continue, aren't keywords that belong to 1.7.9...
Now, if you @list these verbs, every one of them is one line less than the line number shown
above. (EG: #20:explode is a 17-line verb). This seems to be a totally harmless thing, but I don't
remember seeing notes anywhere that during upgrading you may see messages like this...
