Sounds right...

Sounds bad :-( I'd rather not be the guy who has to tell all users that
the files they have from a prior version all need to be hacked via
scripts or redone. Either we provide such a script, and open a window to
explain users what they have to do (which should not be more than
invoking a command with a list of files) when we face that case, or we
do it automatically at next save. Unfortunately, not everybody is a
hacker :-)
