And, as usual with pre-releases (alpha/beta/rc), we might change the new
APIs before the official 1.6.0 is released, so any program written to use
them would need to be re-written. (The usual warning about incompatible
repos/wc formats between pre-release and final release would also apply if
CollabNet were to include changes that bump either format; but they don't
plan to do so.)
