Not much. You'll get higher memory use, and when you restart the  
daemon you'll lose the renamed files and directories tracking  
information, which will result in unnecessary bandwidth and server  
disc space use if you move files before it's completed the first scan.

You certainly don't need readline (and the implied curses).

v4 is a later version. Box Backup uses earlier versions which tend to  
be installed on most systems.
