Yes. I was the one who discovered/filed the bug pointing out that you
can't upgrade from non-shared to shared :P
I agree that shared uids are a better way to go(*) if we were ever to
break the upgrade path.

(*) Only downside is that the current version (using cache dir)
auto-deletes the uncompressed libraries if internal flash ever gets
low on space, like it can easily on original Android devices.
Unpacking at install-time is faster at app start-time, but means the
flash space is always consumed.
