The current user level to capability upgrade code is meant to be run
coming from a 1.5.x DB.  To help us out during the 1.6 development
cycle, I refactored the upgrade code so that it does the right thing
when run from either 1.5.x or from a previous 1.6 nightly.


As mentioned on the testers list, I also added some code that will reset
all roles and capabilities during upgrade if a RESET_CAPS flag is set.  
Add the following to wp-config.php to enable the cap/role resetter.
With RESET_CAPS enabled, updates to the roles will be blown into your DB
each time you upgrade.

define('RESET_CAPS', true);
