Well, what really confused me was the disconnect between the soversion
and the "version".  But this happens with other things, too.  If it's
not a FAQ, then I'd say go with what you've got above and close the bug.

If it *is* a FAQ, I suggest explaining the incongruity.  :)

Thanks for guiding my stupid mind through this.
