Nah... we can leave it in there. It isn't too troublesome. And hey...
my fault for going away on a fabulous sunny vacation, eh? :-P

And the upgrade code isn't/wasn't ready. I slowed down "the rush"

After my commit last night, I think the upgrade code is ready. I just
want to write a few upgrade tests before doing this format bump.
