I found downgrade useful recently. What I did find 'strange' was that I needed
the 'older version' 'to hand' (in my case in the current directory).
For whatever reason this struck me as odd.

Perhaps explain this (and why) in the docs?

And thanks for a great product btw. I'd be back on M$ kit without it.
