Incompatible upgrade - Is this workaround ok? (mysql-mmm)

Hello all,

I maintain Multi-Master Replication Manager for MySQL in both Fedora and EPEL.  With changes from 2.0.11 -> 2.1.0 there was an incompatible change in that the daemon scripts were renamed:

mmmd_agent -> mmm_agentd
mmmd_mon -> mmm_mond

Upgrades obviously break because the INIT scripts and configuration files reference the path to the files.  Would a sufficient work-around be a symlink to the old path, or would that not be kosher for any reason?

Thank you for your feedback.
