'Till today, there is no database stuff needed for tagadelic, so hook_update, 
nor any .install tricks will help. (its a tableless module)
What I am afraid of, is my changed APIs. Anyone whom either calls tagadelic 
APIs in a block, his/her own modules, themes, php-pages or whatever home-made 
code, will be faced with a broken site if he/she runs a CVS up of the stable 
DRUPAL-4-7 branch, if I were to replace that version with the one from HEAD.

I have been hit by this several times myself (most notable: I broke 40 sites 
last month because suddenly the 4.7 image module was changed completely, it 
took me a whole night of database-poking to get it streight again). So I 
strongly and firmly beleive that a once-released module should only get 
bugfixes and never, ever release completely overhauled code on that same 
tag/branch. A new version belongs on a new 'place'.
