    Why do I feel like I'm being baited...? :-)

    I would have to suspect that if a version string exists, that it has at
    least some meaning to the primary developers/maintainters. It certainly
    is beyond my control to force the maintainers to give meaning to their
    version strings.

    Is this a political statement against the MODULE_VERSION macro and/or
    its purpose? I'm not overly interested in debating that one...
