Oh... no. The format of the entries file is changed, but there is no
code to change or use a new format number. Sorry - I remember you
mentioned this a long time ago.

As I understand it, a format number "bump" is required if we're changing
the format. Therefore we have to implement this before merging to trunk,
otherwise existing working copies will be broken. Is that right? (Given
that I can tell you that the code just writes and reads an extra field,
with no special magic to attempt to make it backward compatible.)

Can someone tell me how to implement a format bump?
