There is none.
I would say, we store the data in the format DataStream already know (which happens to be
the Pre-Spur version) and adapt on read. That would ensure backward- and forward-compatibility:
- We could still read CMs serialized in pre-spur.
- We could also read Spur-CMs in pre-spur images.
Ok. -- break --
I just realized that what you changed was the read part. so no
problem here. We could change the part to do things differently
when running on spur or non-spur.
