That also is not right. I thinnk something more on the line of providing
both a version and a API version or something like that, or playing more
tricks with the version number, or even having the posibility to say
that it is ok if the version is a subset of 3.06.1, that is all of
3.06.1.2, 3.06.1-1, etc. Which would be enough for us.
