I'd actually be interested in hearing the "official" on that last question:
Will any version of .21 work with any version of .21?  In other words could
you have, say, a Mac frontend and a linux backend (which would likely be on
different myth versions given distribution releases) and NOT have an issue?

I see this upcoming in my future and just wanted some foreknowledge...
