whenever we change the code in a sharaed lib. Which we don't do now,
except for libpq. For example, plperl still says 0.0, and plpgsql says
1.0. Also, all the conversion procs are at 0.0, and they all build from
the same rule. That means they all need to get bumped when one of them
changes. That may be a good idea for unix platforms as well, but it is
more work during releases that has to be included. Not sure if we want
to buy into that?

Me either. These don't matter too much, but ...

Oh, and for the record, we version libpq.dll on windows in the 7.x.y
manner, and have been doing so ever since we first added win32 support.
We can't really back that one down, so we'd need an exception for that

This one *does* matter, because it's the main library other software depends on. We might have to find some workaround for people who have installed dev versions, but we haven't made an official release yet, so those people are using it on a caveat emptor basis. I really think we need to get this right, and to do so from the start.
