I think a more moderate measure might be to clarify the error message

"aborting because of version mismatch  (Use the -i option to proceed 
anyway.)\n"

I'm not sure how many of the mentioned complaints we are getting, but the 
error message might make people think that it's complaining because the 
versions are not equal rather than that the versions are known not 
compatible.
