Time to upgrade the Brahmos?

Is it time India to sit down and either think of upgrading the range of the Brahmos or designing something new to counter the Pakistani threat posed by Babur 7 (Range 700kms) especially when they will be fitted in their Agosta 90 submarines of the Khalid class.

This is the the upgraded version of Babur 5 (500kms) made with chinese assistance by reverse engineering of the malfunctioning subsonic Tomahawk Cruise Missile, found by the Pakistanis during the Afghan war.

Nita has a rather interesting post on ABM shield, Defence and Missiles which also gives a perspective on defense spending and the Indian Ballistic missile program.
