Does this mean that somebody should create a migration/
script?  It can be a nothing operation, but its existence might make it
clearer to people pulling forward to 1.5

For the record, I had no "/data" changes that I had to make to migrate
from 1.3.5 to 1.5.x except to fix a few plugin/macros that broke (and I
referenced the CHANGELOG to determine the problem).

I love good defensive programming.  Kudos to whoever made sure this
would not be a corrupting process when run incorrectly/unnecessarily.


If a cute saying or a pretty poster is all it takes to motivate you, you
probably have a very easy job.  The kind that robots will be doing soon.
