Yes. It fixes several other problems, too. It also allows fallback 
configs, so we can add an auth method that only TB 3.3 supports, and as 
fallback one that TB 3.1 supports.

Also, 3.1 now supports the more specific auth method 
"password-encrypted" instead of "secure" (which includes Kerberos). We 
can't add that to the 3.0 files either, because the don't know that and 
will throw. That's precisely what bug 531267 fixes, to allow us to 
introduce new stuff without breaking old clients.

Agreed. Thanks for getting this rolling :).
