In reply to jools:

If the two branches simply went off in their own direction then we would already have a complete disaster, because it is rather important that each function within a given library chunk have a unique and well-defined interface. Fortunately, that hasn't happened.

Given that this basic level of cooperation is essential, it would not be difficult to arrange for the version number to increment each time the interface is changed.

What would be needed for this to happen is agreement that the version number identifies the interface to which a module conforms rather than a specific implementation.
