Nope, that's totally wrong. You can get away with that if we've not
already shipped a 1.5 release --- but we did ship it in v10, so that
version is frozen now. You need to make your changes in a 1.5--1.6
upgrade file. Otherwise there's no clean path for existing installations
to upgrade to the new version.
