I'm okay with that, but—— Just to play the Devil's Advocate, having an op-version that bears some resemblance to the _version_ number may make it easy/easier to determine what the op-version ought to be. We aren't going to run out of numbers, so there's no reason to be "efficient" here. Let's try to make it easy. (Easy to not make a mistake.)
