If you think about it, what you describe is not much different to "if
I write the binary using C++, can I read it with java / C# /
ActionScript / etc" - since they all have different code describing
the same binary wire-format.

The answer is: yes, (assuming there are no significant bugs between
the versions). The wire format is designed not to be closely tied to
the compiler / language / etc - it should only care about the type
definitions you use.

I would /expect/ things to remain backwards compatible, for obvious
reasons. But life has few guarantees ;-p
