Rather than creating new flags or runtime config options, wouldn't it
just be simpler to prompt the user before doing an auto-upgrade? I
mentioned this idea earlier in the thread.

"WARNING: you're using a 1.5 client, and this means upgrading your
working copy so that it's no longer accessible by older clients. Are
you sure you want to proceed?"

This will prevent accidents happening from random user
'experimentation'. And it means no cryptic errors of things just
failing, because a user happens to have "auto-upgrade = false" in
their config file.
