The only problems with doing such will arise on machines that don't have 
the files telling them how to access the database.  In this instance, 
they will go out searching for a backend over UPNP, and may come up with 
the wrong one.  You may want to run the 0.22 backend with '--no-upnp' 
just to make sure something doesn't connect and try to update the database.
