The TSVN installer already mentions the SVN version number in its file
name, e.g.
TortoiseSVN-1.7.6.22632-x64-svn-1.7.4.msi
                             =========

And the last few 1.6.x releases also didn't have matching version
numbers, e.g.
TortoiseSVN-1.6.16.21511-x64-svn-1.6.17.msi

So that wasn't a problem back then.
Why is it now?
