Are you sure about that? I think Troy was keen that 1.6.x does not
_break_ anything, but adding of new methods which do not alter anything
prexisting should be without problem? No one would need to change their
programme for that, but people could start making use of the facility as
it becomes available - if they want to.

The automatic repository update was one of those things.
