AIUI, filetype style keys (and 'old filetypes') have not changed - isn't it just that setting colors per-filetype is not compatible with color schemes?

It seems easier to just put "not compatible" rather than listing all the ways it might break :) I guess a similar but more poorly worded version would be:

While strictly speaking the filetypes.* files are completely compatible still,
depending on what filetypes.* files you have copied to your ~/... directory and
which version of color schemes you have copied to your ~/... directory, and
whether you've installed geany-themes or other 3rd party color schemes, you
may or may not experience some types of syntax highlighting issues.

Also, it's probably not a bad idea to get people to upgrade their ~/.../filetypes.* anyway since some might be using really old ones still and are potentially missing out on some improvements/fixes made since (ex. single line comment stuff).
