May be call it 1.6.10.
(Example: When Sun's Java SDK had a big enhancement, they jumped from
1.6u7 directly to 1.6u10)

... and later 1.6.18 when linked against SVN 1.6.8
Or: 1.6.100 ... 1.6.108

- "1000 flies won't be in error" IOW: others should follow TSVN's good
example
- TSVN users are used to have the versions synched since long, so they
probably would be more irritated and astonished than others.

This could express, that those T versions are in delay, offering ALL lib
features in their GUI.
... but vice-versa doesn't make sense.

My 2 cents,
