I think the language is pretty clear that we're allowed to bump the
repository format during a 1.x series, but that doesn't mean it's a good
idea.

We know that forcing a dump and load for a downgrade will cause pain in
some number of situations, including some situations where people never
even considered using locking. Unless we think it's really bad if a
lock is circumvented because someone accessed the repository with 1.1
server code, I think we should leave the version alone.
