The change to the signature of set is backward incompatible and should have a deprecation warning instead (yes, I know it isn't documented).  I'd even be OK with the value being ignored, but the signature shouldn't change.

There are a number of API/behavior changes noted in the NEWS which IMO need a versionchanged in the docs and an entry in whatsnew.
