Oh, it also changes the default permissions, disallowing
Jifty::Action::Devel::* and Jifty::Action::Record::*, which were
security holes.  The former allowed you to write to any file on the
server's disk which was writable by the webserver.  Potentially useful
in a development environment, but not something you want for your
production code. ;>
