Right, but if it is part of the initial 1.6 release, I think people  
will quite a bit more cautious then just replacing binaries anyway  
since it is a major version change then then a .x update.  There  
should be some communication at the very least in the release notes.  
But If you are going to do it, then 1.6 is the time to do it as long  
as it is stable. :)
