Pretty much.  I will double-triple-check that of course.  It is an
index upgrade, so it's hard to downgrade again afterwards.  You
probably don't want to put the initial testing release onto your
main production systems straight away.

We did, but that's because we had me watching, and it had to be
put through fire somewhere.

It will be easy - easy upgrade is important :)  Replication between
old and 2.4 doesn't work - but we're going to make sure murder does!
