I've done this (upgrading to 1.2), yes you just need to add the to
compatibility plugins, and make sure they are added in the correct
order. Though then you have three files to load instead of one, but
you can always roll them up into one, and run packer on that, then use
that as your base jQuery file.

You just need to replace the jquery.js file that ships with Drupal with a new download of jQuery 1.1, and then also have a simple dummy module that adds the jQuery 1.1 backward compatibility plugin (available from jquery.com).  I haven't tried upgrading to 1.2 yet, although in theory it should be the same procedure but include adding the 1.2 backward compatibility plugin as well.
