Would it make sense to have a separate "update" process, so the parser
in the loader will never have to deal with legacy files?

When the user opens a file with a lower version number, we branch into
an update wizard that handles updating the file, rewrites it as the new
version and then restarts the load process.

This way we could also keep the schematic element rescue outside of the
loader code.
