 Nothing is guarantied in this context ;-( 
any (or all) older (& current) version of the 
GiP script may become incapacitated at any 
time by the beeb's changes.

according to my tests. 

 One other area of concern is removed/changed/deprecated 
options, that I neglected to mention in my previous post. 
Older versions of the script may look 
for options that have been removed by 
more recent versions - if they are still present inside 
your options file, the more recent versions will nag you 
about them and urge you to remove them, breaking 
backwards compatibility with older versions if you do...

So moving back and forth in GiP versions 
is not to be taken lightly...

Call it a night, I shall...
