Yes, but first we have to decide, what should the patch do?
Imho that patch should not block execution at all, only warn
for a possile mismatch of version numbers.

The point is, until we have a firm spec how all applications
should emit their version nummers over de command line,
there will not be a stable solution for version number 

I have written a script which does a reasonable job for in most
situations for version numbers up to three level version numbers.
However, this is quite lengthy, and still is not bullitproof.
I think this is not adequate for this situation.

If you agree with me that a simple version comparison with a
two digit number, emmiting a warning only is sufficient in this
case i can make the patch.
