Well, AFAIK, we require config compatibility between subsequent
versions, so there really shouldn't be anything to report. It might be
useful to report, when running the havana tool against an
upgraded-from-grizzly config which things are deprecated though.

We already test that the config upgrade works in the grenade test in the
gate, so there really shouldn't be any degredation experienced by the
user after an upgrade...
