I'll add that the additional wrinkle is that once you move to the new
version, it updates the encryption on your database...which is
great..but then you can't downgrade back to a version that works with
the gconf settings already in your user space. So for unsuspecting
users they end up with a revelation with strong encryption but with
egregiously broken ui.. you can search... you cant generate new
passwords..its all borked.,..until you nuke the gconf settings

So the fact that you can't downgrade to the old version because of the
encryption change... i'm not keen on pushing this until someone has a
fix for the gconf stuff.
