I had been running Knoppmyth, but had to install CVS so that I could
get mythcommflag not to hang.  Afterwards, I downgraded back to
Knoppmyth (.15.1 IIRC) and haven't had a bit of trouble.  Isaac seemed
to think this would cause problems, but I haven't seen any so far;
YMMV.  I'm not saying there aren't "database issues", but the upgrade
from .15.1 -> CVS along with a subsequent downgrade from CVS -> .15.1
hasn't caused me any problems.

But, then again, as Hamish points out, if 0.15.1 needs something that
CVS didn't have, you might run into trouble.

| Yes, it probably won't work. Some Myth upgrades alter the database

| indexes or keys get removed.
| If 0.15.1 needs something that's gone, it won't run.
