The RHEL/Fedora RPMs have never specified this one way or the other,
so they'd just get the default. I haven't really thought about whether
to change that when 8.4 comes out. I'd prefer to follow upstream's
lead on the point; but if for instance we could do update-in-place
so long as you hadn't switched datetime representation, that would be a
pretty powerful incentive to stick with the float format.
