OK. I have checked in a changed Jambase on the RC_1_28_0 branch. I have to
go to dinner now, but afterwards I'll modify the v1 startup behavior tests
so that they correspond to the 1.27.0 configuration, and run them to make
sure everything is OK. My suggestion, if anyone wants to be proactive, is
that we all rebuild jam and hang onto it somewhere but do not post any
updated prebuilts to SF until we've all agreed it's a GO.
