Yes, but that would be a matter of configuration in the cell. For at
least the forseeable future, the version of OpenAFS alone is not going
to cause incompatibilities. They all _can_ be compatible with each

I can see the argument that a version number should indicate when it's
_possible_ to turn off access from older clients; that will probably
sort-of happen anyway with 2.0 with rxgk. Even with that, though, it's
just the authentication mechanism; the core access RPCs are still
