RE: Well-formed Blueberry

It also depends on whether or not the version number 
indicates a larger scope of changes beyond blueberry 
requirements.  Once the version bottle is uncorked, 
others have suggested more things be put in it, 
for example, namespaces.

The trouble with this scheme is that it makes generation on the fly,
particularly by separate modules, difficult.

I would certainly agree that it SHOULD, but MUST seems a bit severe.
