Originally VDR had only one version number, and that was used for VDR itself and to indicate the plugin versions to use for that version of VDR. Then people complained that they had to recompile all plugins with every new version of VDR, even if no interface had been changed. That's why a separate APIVERSION has been introduced, indicating the version of the plugin API. Naturally, that APIVERSION was related directly to the VDRVERSION. I don't see why using a completely different versioning system here would avoid confusion If people want to get confused, they'll get confused, anyway. The only thing that would really make sense to me would be to drop the whole APIVERSION thing and get back to a single VDRVERSION again.
