Well, I think 'unblessed' releases (i.e. from trunk by Joe Random developer
aka Justin) needs some type of versioning information, too - just to provide a
point of reference. *I* need version information, too.

Since there is server/client-compatibility/repository schemas encoded into a
version, I think it's critical that everything have a readable version no
matter if it is blessed or not. Otherwise, the user has no clue what 'blessed
releases' it is compatible with. For example, in the short term, we expect
trunk should be 1.0 compatible; long term, we have no idea what 2.0 will mean
to users. -- justin
