Max has spent the most time in the issue tracker of any of us lately
-- if he's saying that the Version field is generally useless and/or a
source of misinformation, I'm inclined to believe him :-).

However, if the problem is simply that we (developers who process
incoming issues) need to remember to set the Version field to
something meaningful, we could start doing that, it wouldn't add
significant overhead. We could always set it to "---" when there's no
better value available.

Max, is there some reason this solution wouldn't work? I just hate to
throw out the baby with the bathwater, on the other hand I don't want
to bite the hand that feeds the mouths of the kine who tread the grain.
Or something like that.
