AFAIK, in general it is unsafe to assume that 2.1 database files can be used by 2.3... that's what I call "minor".

Ah... I consider releases like 2.1.20 to 2.1.22 to be a very minor upgrade... But I guess that is just patchlevel. ;) 2.1 and 2.3 might be the "minor" numbers, but they are major upgrades. :P
