How about a config option to enable automatic WC upgrades?
I would prefer it to be off by default, since we need to mix old
and new clients (for various reasons) and I don't think most of
our users will be initially needing the new format.

If automatic upgrades are disabled, and the user tries to do an
operation that needs the new format, it would ask them to upgrade the WC.

Thoughts?
