If we can design to avoid bumping the wc format, I think we should.
Compatibility code is irritating to maintain (code to upgrade the wc
format as well as code to handle the old format for read-only
operations), and there's also some end-user pain associated with
upgrades which involve wc format bumps.

(I'm *not* saying we shouldn't bump the wc format in 1.4. The
performance advantages of wc-propcaching are compelling enough to
warrant a bump. But such bumps are not free.)
