Thanks for the pointer.  This isn't exactly what I meant, but it will work.
I was actually thinking that there was some sort of "versioning" thing that
was talked about in TDG, but I can't find it now.  This stuff isn't really a
comment, but part of the document that isn't really ready for general
consumption.  Probably doesn't matter, it should only take me another day or
so to get this translation finished for version 0.1.  I'll post it here when
it's done.  Thanks,
