You have it backwards, Alexis: a 3.[12] server can interwork with 3.[012]
clients; 3.1 clients require at least a 3.1 server (I'm not sure if 3.2
clients will work with a 3.1 server, I suspect they will).

So, if you are upgrading your server from 3.[01] to 3.[12], you do not
need to upgrade your clients.
