That could mean that we need to support multiple versions concurrently.  In
our last go-round of changes to the context structure, I believe we ended up
with an extensible capability; we just need to manage it carefully.  (It'll
depend, of course, on what Chris ends up needing.)  I'd certainly prefer not
to have to support multiple versions if we can avoid it. :-)
