I agree, BUT:

This change is something that is not requiring manual changes IF there would
be an upgrade assistant that can perform some automated steps.

I woul like to see such a tool as soon as possible, and if we had it ready
in 4.0, I wouldn't mind to make (even such a big change) now.

I think this is still true for all things that cannot be solved without
manual interaction.
