Yeah, I told you that 0.20.2 had a parentid and a childcardid, but I 
didn't bother to tell you that they were both removed from the DB schema 
for 0.21 because someone told me, "It looks as if the Myth software is 
out of sync with the database schema, but I don't see how this could be 
possible. I haven't upgraded the software (0.20.2) in months and nobody 
else would have done so."  :)

But, yeah, 0.21 does do a database backup before upgrade, so you can go 
back.  In all reality, though, your best bet is to just take the hint 
the universe is trying to give you--upgrade your ancient 0.20.2 system 
to the "supported" 0.21 version.
