March 2013 Breaking Changes

The following changes can be enabled/disabled using the "March 2013 Breaking Changes" migration until March 6th when they will go into effect permanently for everyone:

No more accessing mailbox FQL tables without a user session
It will not longer be possible to access the message, thread, or mailbox_folder FQL tables without a user session.

Removing apps from /me/accounts/ and page_admin FQL table
We will no longer show apps under /me/accounts/ in the Graph API or in the page_admin FQL table. You can access the list of apps a user is a developer on by hitting /me/applications/developer/ or using the app_role FQL table.
