2.6.0 backwards compatibility

Hello all,

I saw on the Release notes that 2.6.0 is using protocol version 27 which is
different than 2.5.7 and 2.5.6.  I did a quick peak through the rest of the
release notes and quickly browsed the archives on the list and I didn't see
any notes on how well 2.6.0 works with older versions of rsync.  At our
site, we do have 2.5.7 and 2.5.6 installed.  Are there any documented
problems when using 2.6.0 with a down revved version on another system?

Thanks much,

Ben Piela
