Buy a new disk, unplug the old one and do a clean install of f11 on it
when f11 comes out in a week.  Then recompile your proprietary software
and run.  If it fails, you can always put the old fc3 disk back in and
wait till someone breaks in and destroys the system.  At that point it
won't matter that the proprietary stuff doesn't run on f11, because it
won't run on the fc3 installation either. ;-)

All joking aside, I don't see how you can avoid reinstalling your
proprietary stuff under a more recent OS.
