The repository is not intended to be either forward or backward
compatible. However, there are checks in place that are supposed to
detect if you're trying to load an incompatible repository, and put up
a dialog in that case. So far as I know, there is no difference in
repository format between Chandler 1.0.2 and trunk.
The backup.chex file in your profile dir, is forward compatible, and
that's what's used to migrate your data across upgrades.
