Hrrm--Adam, I think you know how much I respect you and your efforts for
we, the users, and so also hope you'll forgive the sarcasm but....

Hrrm, somehow, I'm missing the part that says--if you want to change
your runlevel the way you've done it since it's inception, simply do....

So, I fear that I would have to say this is the Volgan effect.  You
mention a change, without really saying how it will change the everyday
stuff.  Actually, it implies that there won't be a difference as it says
that it maintains compatibility.

Anya: I have witnessed a millennium of treachery and oppression 
from the males of the species, and I have nothing but contempt 
for the whole libidinous lot of them. 
Xander: Then why are you talking to me? 
Anya: I don't have a date for the prom. 
Xander: Well, gosh, I wonder why not? It couldn't possibly have 
anything to do with your sales pitch. 
Anya: Men are evil. Will you go with me?
