-e is orthogonal to the purported problem: it just means putting the
output in the file again instead of on stdout.  Which is usually what
you want.

-d means no update in version header unless changes happen.  That is
also usually what you would want.  Without -d, the version of the last
applicable rule is used instead (rather than the last rule actually
causing a change).

In the case that no rule would be applied because the file is already
newer than all rules, I think it would make sense _not_ to change the
version header even without -d.
