Don't gripe me about that bug.  I commented on that very bug pointing 
out that the PK is needed.

Also, nobody is obstructing that bug, but nobody seems to have taken on 
the task of making the conversion code work properly.  For existing 
databases, it is probably necessary to first assign integers to the new 
field in the correct order, then identify the new field as a primary key.
