... and add a deprecation warning for the time that the two are in
parallel. I think that's what Brian usually does.

Note, you can probably happily fake that as good as it gets by just
adding an array or a hash as value for the property, and to append to
that instead of setting it. Or to do something else. I use complex
pickle-able things in build properties myself, that's not a problem.
And given that there are no distinct step pickle files anyway, you
might just end up with the same thing if you implement
