Here's the reason: we want to minimize waste.

If we printed a version number on the manuals, we'd have to toss the whole lot
every time we did an update.

As it is, we can use, say, the Retrospect 4.0 manual with Retrospect 4.1 by
adding release notes. Then, we can update the 4.0 manual by including the
release notes and releasing a new 4.1 manual. In addition, some people got 4.0
and others 4.0a, but the manual didn't need any changes at all.

If we put the version number on the manuals, we'd almost always have too many
or too few manuals, which would result in waste.

Would you like to borrow a magic marker? ;-)
