This is false. Anything that relied on direct SQL to the category tables
would have been broken since the first beta, as those tables were no
longer updated or used by the core code. The only thing that RC1 would
have changed is you'd get a "table not found" error.
However the tables had not been updated or used for several versions
before that, and if you didn't notice then you must not have been using
them that closely.
