Just noted in README (this show to me again and again to read carefully all
related information :( )

from README:

Backwards compatibility
The REVTeX 4.1 class file has been named revtex4-1.cls to distinguish it
from its predecessors. If the class file is copied to revtex4.cls,
files created with earlier versions of REVTeX 4 should still work.

And I should add: and cross your fingers :)

For my purpose I'll collect all related information for this situation
and write small note (for my colleagues).

WBW, Vladimir
