Upgrading to MySQL 4.0

Currently, I'm running 3.23.51 on Red Hat 7.1, and I'm contemplating
upgrading to MySQL 4.0, but I'm not sure what to expect. I don't know if
MySQL 4.0 is fully backwards-compatible with 3.23.x versions, or if
something is going to break if I upgrade.

What are the main advantages of upgrading to 4.0? Speed? Features? I can go
through the whole changelog if need be, but I'd prefer to hear what actual
users are reporting as far as benefits and disadvantages.
