Question on client / working copy compatibility - part 2

Hi all,

-- thanks a lot for clarifying my first question - there is
(currently) no public API call to be used in order to get information
about the compatibility of two clients. Nice idea to add it to
svnclient.h, though.

Now another question, which is somewhat related to this:

I'm assuming that 1.7 clients are (planned to be) able to work on
local metadata, which is compatible with the 1.6 format, as long as
this metadata has not been upgraded explicitly by a 1.7 client? In
other words, could I continue to operate on my local wc using 1.6 and
1.7 clients in parallel? I would maybe loose some of the new features
of 1.7 in this case, but after explicitly upgrading my wc to 1.7
client format, I would be able to use the features (if any). Is this
the correct idea?
