Good question.  We have some new stuff in 6.5 tree, and none of it
tested.  The only thing that I think could be a problem is Vadim's
changes to the structure of the row headers.  This could majorly break
things internally.

The big problem is that the data rows were created with a different
format than the backend expected.  At least that is my conclusion based
on what Vadim had done.

A dump/restore should may fix any breakage, but you may have to restore
and re-run the updates.
