Depends. I "accidently" did that a while back while testing out the
-vid branch (without realizing it was going to change my db) and
haven't had many issues since, and shortly after I tested the -vid
branch I reverted back to .20-fixes and have been running it for quite
some time. I do have a few hiccups occasionally and I do blame my
lack of backup-prior-to-db-change for the hiccups, but it wasn't like
I had to wipe the slate clean and start over.
The other side of the that depends is that it was quite a while ago
and .20-fixes and -vid weren't that different of db schemas (it was
shortly after the .20 release) while today an SVN schema and a
.20-fixes schema may be entirely incompatible.
