I would be scared to use a version that old for anything :-)

The changes to encoding/collation in 4.1 are pretty drastic; at the
very least I would migrate to that version as soon as possible.

MySQLdump is pretty configurable, and if something really needs to
be changed for another DB, a simple search/replace would probably
do it. But why not just try it?

Install PostgreSQL, Derby, Oracle 10g, DB2 and give it a spin. :-)
