Interesting idea.

Not sure the system catalog change argument is valid, since in that case
upgrade code would have to handle user procedures and functions anyway.

Also possible might be to more closely integrate the create and upgrade
code for procedures, so that adding a new procedure almost automatically
makes it part of upgrade. A method that is called by create database and

void createProcedures(boolean upgrade, int databaseVersion)
  if (!upgrade)
    ... create 10.0 procedures

  if (!upgrade || databaseVersion < DD_Version.DERBY_10_1)
   ... create 10.1 procedures
