Can we just add it as insecure for a couple of releases (or just one)
w/ a warning saying that it'll be changed to secure?

This won't take that much work out of OPs since it'll be required to
update the config anyway but at least it'll give enough time and it'll
allow for gradual updates.

Thanks for working on this, Ian.
