In my experience recently Berkeley DB has been a lot more forgiving
recently.  Note that Debian links EDS against DB 4.5, and in the past
has linked against 4.4, 4.3, 4.2 instead of the EDS-bundled 4.1 without
any problems.

EDS has code to handle database upgrades if the file format does change.
Yes, this means that the user can't then use the same data file on
another machine if it uses an older DB version, but the DB file isn't
meant for interchange so I don't see this as a problem.
