Setting 3.0.0 as target to make sure we check this in 3.0 cycle at latest (it appears in searches of 3.0 targeted tickets). Backporting to S2_6 is something to consider when we have at least plans how this is be made.

We've got machinery in savecompat.c to migrate server settings in old savegames to equivalent values for the current server.

There's no such machinery for old server settings in old client rc files, so they are ignored or lost.
(Except for settable_option_upgrade_value() and allow_digital_boolean, which do some 2.2->2.3 stuff.)

So for instance a .freeciv-client-rc-2.4 which has killcitizen="SEA" will not result in a .freeciv-client-rc-2.5 with killcitizen=FALSE, as it would in a savegame.

Maybe we should pool the migration logic in common/ somewhere.
