I'm not so sure this concept is irrelevant to general purpose application

* Does your application architecture expose abstractions as
  interfaces (or abstract classes)?

* Do you have more than one implementation of those abstractions?

* Do the implementations rev independently of (and probably at a faster
  rate than) the abstractions?

If so, exactly the same versioning model is quite reasonable.
