It would be nice to auto-upgrade, but sure... devs can deal with this
pain. Not worried here.

It would be even nicer to fail only if *certain* items are discovered,
rather than "any" item.

Same as above.

Right. Same as before. "1.7-dev with wq... would be nice to
auto-upgrade, but failing is okay".

This is the case that I'm concerned about, and tried to clarify in my
earlier email. Once 1.7 is released, then auto-upgrades may need to
inspect/rewrite the workqueue. Hopefully, they can ignore it (much
like we ignored stale "log" files during previous auto-upgrades).

We can do format bumps or rename workqueue OP_* values to separate
-dev from -release items.
