I am not against having an svn upgrade, but it seems worth noting why
would anyone bother to report that they want you to keep a feature
they already have? If users are happy with auto-upgraded working
copies, which is all we ever gave them, why would they feel the need
to post requests to keep the feature?

We are only ever going to hear the complaints. That does not mean
they speak for the majority of users.
