Thank you. Some comments follow.

A comment should explain why we're using a commit hash instead of a tag.

This is not the correct version. Actually, I couldn't find any reference
to a version at all in the file, so it should be "0", with a comment.

  Be careful!  All programmers see the same buffers and live edits, and
  any programmer can take over the editing session.
