The db will need to change sometime soonish, but at this point the plan
is definitely to migrate old db format forward. The changes will also
probably of the form of adding rows to existing tables and perhaps
creating a couple of new tables. I'll be sure to send a mail to the
list describing the planned changes in advance of actually committing
the changes to warn people.
If you are ok with that level of stability feel free to release your
tools, otherwise wait until I've had time to finish the new design.
Unfortunately I'm not certain exactly when I'll get around to that.
