Yep. I'm not being entirely logical, just drawing a line in the sand.  
I'd have the same opinion about a samples vote or a 2.1.2 server vote.

I'm not saying that it's the plugin's fault. My assumption is that we  
can fix the migration issue by using artifact aliases in 2.1.2.  
However, if we find that there's some change needed in the plugin,  
itself, we should be fixing the problem, now.
