Having SD do any upgrades for you is a smart move if you are not comfortable with such things.
Just remember to keep a log of any Mods to the stock code you might implement so that you (or SD) will know what to do after an upgrade.
A very important thing to keep in mind is that the stock code is undergoing rather radical changes and so a Mod such as this, though still likely possible, may well require editing of a different file, or the appropriate line of code might be on a different line number within the file after an update.
The next release will bring LOTS of changes.
Another consideration is that little Mods such as this one just might make it into the stock code as an option within the CP on a future release.
