Hmm. A random idea here, and not quite related to what you're talking
about: A /proc/version file that contains version information for each
type of file, something like:

filesystems 1.0
kcore 1.0
net/ 1.0
net/arp 1.0


Or maybe that should be a /proc/versions/ directory which mimics the exact
structure of the /proc directory except that every file only contains the
version number of the code that is providing that file.
