Does this have any impacts on backwards compatibility? If we change the 
name of the Inventory Database, does that end up orphan all my chunks 
already stored on Amazon::S3 that are GPG encrypted?

I know you can overwrite the value via config, but would it make sense 
to try to make the changes somewhat backwards compatible or at least 
dump some sort of warning/error?
