True, but I think we'll have to deal with that anyway.  Even if the
physical database upgrade were trivial, people are going to find
application compatibility problems due to schemas and other 7.3 changes.
So we're going to have to expend at least some work on fixing critical
7.2.* problems.  (I just want to keep a tight rein on how much.)
