Ok, perhaps I should have expressed myself a bit clearer - I wrote "not
inherently backwards compatible" which still is true IMHO - and
especially the other way around (loading say a 3.8 IS into a 3.7 image).
And I said "For example, loading projects from 3.7 into 3.8 causes
problems (due to the new wide String

other way around and secondly I agree that it doesn't HAVE to fail.
