most things are still safe because they
cannot actually talk to the backend.

It may still cause problems, but I wanted a
way to allow newer frontends to at least run.

e.g. Someone brings over a new LiveCD or their
laptop to demonstrate a new plugin or feature.
You graciously let them connect to your database,
but not do anything dangerous like scheduling or
editing recordings.

If you are still uncomfortable, maybe a second
OkPopup after the user selects "Use old..." ?

Possible, although the current ability to upgrade
from several programs is a lot simpler?
