    Doing so will most likely destroy all your MySQL Databases.

    The database format is different between 4.1 and 4.0 so the only
    way you could backwards downgrade would be to export all databases
    to text SQL dump files and reload into manually created databases
    after manually downgrading ---- in short, pain in the #!$!#$

    I personally do not see any point why you would want to go to 4.0!

    In some rare cases, I can see the need to stay back on v4.1 but
    there is absolutely no practical purpose whatsoever staying on 4.0!

    Both 4.0 and 4.1 are long since obsolete and most all applications
    out there are designed specifically for use with MySQL v5.x now.
