Umm. The _developer_ had better test the thing. That is absolutely
_zero_ excuse for then forcing every boot for every poor user to re-do

Guys, this comes up every single time: you as a developer may think
that your code is really important, but get over yourself already.
It's not so important that everybody must be forced to do it.
