in thread $VERSION in module files

Yes and no. It can also be like having different birthdays for your limbs. It might make sense for a peg leg, but mostly unnecessary. Depends on how interdependent the modules are.


If its mostly unnecessary, what would be the point of inheriting a version number? Just ask the head
