Cool.  It turns out I didn't have to make it all backwards incompatible just yet, because instead I just detect if it's using the old Chert backend and force a reindex of all email to upgrade to Glass.

(but can still read from a mix of both, so you can phase the upgrade)

This is going to the rest of FastMail production today after running happily for the past 4 days for ~5% of our users.
