Before I panic everyone on the list for the second time today, there's a 
way to back out of this change and make the stack 2.4 compatible again, 
but you'll lose any 2.7 features if you do it. The info was not included 
in the What's New file, so I'm not sure if it's okay to post it here. To 
be safe, just plan on working on duplicates.
