This is not the case though. Once you have a shared repo format, you no
longer need to upgrade for this to automatically use the shared repo.
Its presumed you will have an appropriately formatted shared repo you
are pushing the branch to, and thus there is no problem.

This issue will only exist when the bzrdir format bumps, and that should
be extremely rare from here on out: we can add new tree formats, branch
formats etc to the one bzrdir 'metadir' format.
