It's not that, it is that I reload directories and move some stuff around,
each time there is a major release.  I simply have not done that yet.

It is a very minor fix.  It should not impact any 'real' usage of JtR, other
than running it against the newest test suite code, which I will not be
releasing until Sunday anyway.  In 'real' runtime, someone on a BE could run
dynamic_29. They could not run dynamic_27, it would give a format not known.

I am sure there will be other changes, which we can move forward as a J6. I
really have not dug in yet :)  I have been more focused on other things.
