ACK. This will meet the interests of both usergroups.
The 0.7-package should take care, that an existing 0.6-drbd.conf is not
damaged. Also 0.7 should not start an existing 0.6-drbd-device, because
this could damage data. Both things are guaranteed by Lars' coding, what
I have seen from the source. But an additional check will not be worse;-)
