Yes. Significant reorganizations of functionality not yet in the platform
took place between 7.6.3 and 7.8.1 time frames. When we add that
functionality (aeson, for example), it pulls a bunch of that functionality
into the platform (builder, for example). If we release HP on 7.6.3, then
either we don't include the new functionality at all (the decision back
last Fall when we considered this), or we release on 7.6.3, with the new
functionality, but have to accept that the APIs will wholly change when we
release with 7.8.x down the road.
