If the issue is primarily committing stuff that another client can't
safely read, rather than a true archive format change (e.g. something
you'd see affecting 'archive-mirror'), perhaps putting that version in
a patch-log header might be a good idea.

Of course, it wouldn't solve the issue of older clients right today.
