Yes. I hadn't realised they did this test differently, sorry.

If it changes the API, the build might break whatever you do.
So it's probably best to assume that it doesn't change API.
(Also: API changes usually cause the build to explode; this
test failing will just quietly disable a feature).

Better, but it'll still go wrong with Neon 0.40 or 1.00. I guess it
needs to be something like:

if test -n ["`echo "$NEON_VERSION" | $EGREP
    '^(([1-9][0-9]*)|(0\.(29|[3-9][0-9])))\.'`"] ; then

? That should match 0.29-0.99 and 1.0 or later. I'm assuming there
won't ever be a 0.100 release.

(Aside: This would be much easier if neon #defined a macro like
NE_VERSION_NUMBER, which we could just test in an #ifdef.
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have one).
