These are the exact number of existing installations that are going to break when going from

1.5.x and 2.x installation will never be upgradable out of the box.
Since we breaking things, let's be consistent and try to gather all the configuration in a
single location.

Software is about change. We would never go beyond the 1.0 mark if everything was set in stone
