  being used to mysql 5.1 on my fedora system, i'm suddenly looking
after a centos 5.4 box with mysql 5.0.77.  before i start digging into
the mysql 5.0-5.1 changelog, do i have a lot to worry about in terms
of mentally backing up one version?  or is simply upgrading the centos
box to mysql 5.1 an option?  (i realize that mysql 5.1 is *not*
officially supported in centos 5.4.)
