I hope so. I have seem some quirky problems with 4.x with some of our
applications. Although we do keep good backups, on the 4.x server, we

During a recent billing cycle, our sql server experienced a crash. once
the machine was brought back up, we had lost ~2 weeks of billing
data. Luckily, we do keep backups, and we run 3.23 in parallel with 4.x
just to be safe.
Our billing database averages about 3600 rows per customer per month,
multipled by ~25 customers who has billing processed by this system.
