Well, I would use the exact same argument used for protobuf (which only
complication was getting protoc 2.5.0 in the jenkins boxes and communicate
developers to do the same, other than that we didn't hit any other issue
AFAIK) ...

IMO, it makes more sense to do this change during the beta rather than when
GA. That gives us more flexibility to iron out things if necessary.
