* Time period: The amount of time you expect user to take filling out

+* ``contrib.auth`` user password hash-upgrade sequence
+ * Consequences: Each user's password will be updated to a stronger password
+ hash when it's written to the database in 1.4. This means that if you
+ upgrade to 1.4 and then need to downgrade to 1.3, version 1.3 won't be able

+ well with Django 1.4 and you won't have to roll back to 1.3, enable the new
