Yeah, that would certainly be a solution, althought the really old
versions (that are stable in distros now) wouldn't know or care or check
something like this. But I like the approach and will think if we
shouldn't adopt it. A "minimum-version-required" field, so to
say. (actually the sqlite cache database has a db-format version field).
