Adding columns to a table is easy, removing them takes a bit more
work. Since I suspect your change would require a bit of both, I
think it falls into the "bit more work" category.

That being said, the f99 format (which should be the first bump for
1.8) is there so that we can do changes which require this extra work.
 Since things are functioning right now for 1.7, I'd suggest making
this change in 1.8, if you feel it should be made at all.
