No-one has ever needed to add "backward supporting" code for Potlatch
anywhere, whether on 0.4 or 0.5, and there's no question of them doing
so this time, either. You may not like the internals and I can
understand that, but Potlatch always tries to play nice. With 0.6, as
with 0.5, the main API is actually moving slightly closer to the way
Potlatch has always done things _anyway_.
Ah, the bullets you have to take for being ahead of the curve. :p

Well, ideally it'd be good to add
to do the same thing as Potlatch's 'putway' call, and then migrate the
latter to use the same methods.
It would also be good to make
actually cope with relations - at present it just throws a
Precondition Failed if you try to delete a way which is a member of
Those two are the bulk of the SQL in amf_controller. Fixing those
would just leave the POI stuff (which is sufficiently trivial I can
probably have a go at it without breaking too much) and Potlatch's
atomic history/revert, where I suspect the best strategy is to leave
it as is until we've seen how people are using 0.6-style revert in
