The schema change captures mergeinfo that would be hard to go back and
recreate in 1.6 if we do not start capturing it now. I suggested that
Kamesh extract out the schema change and the code that populates the
table so that we would have the OPTION of including it in 1.5 if his
other work did not make it AND we concluded that this extra
information was going to eventually be essential.
