A few years ago I had to convert a codebase that used some 0.13.1 Mercury
code (and older!) into code that worked for a 2013 release.  I had to change
a lot of the use of state variable syntax in types like map.  You may have a
similar experience.  It's tedius, VERY TEDIOUS but can be done.

Good luck.
