Subclipse version numbering

From: Russel Winder <russel_at_russel.org.uk>

The recent kerfuffle over version numbers and a few other issues has
made me wonder if the Subclipse version numbers should have more
structure to them.

I am moving to using Ubuntu which releases every 6 months with whatever
version of Subversion is available when they freeze for the build. This
means being well behind in Subversion versions. This is not Ubuntu
specific but true for everyone who does not install their own Subversion
version.

Given that Subclipse depends crucially on the Eclipse and Subversion
version, I wonder if it would be good for the Subclipse version number
encoded this information so that people could quickly ascertain which is
the latest version of Subclipse they can use install into their system?

I am assuming that this is more of an issue for JavaHL users than it is
for JavaSVN users?
