No, there were some real problems with the car plugin, probably a few  
more too.

I really don't think so.  I don't deny that not specifying the  
version has left some uncertainly, but it certainly was not the cause  
of all of the problems you reference below.

Why do you think that caching of old junk was related in any way to  
the version of the car plugin being omitted?  Most of these problems  
were actually in configs/* modules which did have the version specified.

The rest... well, I'm not really sure.  Some of this might be caused  
by the version being ommited.  It would be interesting to know after  
the change you made if anymore of these evil serialVersionUID errors  
pop up.

Anyways, there were *real* problems with the car plugin.  The version  
should have also been specified and its good you found that... but I  
really don't think that all problems we have been seeing with cars  
simply goes way by setting the version.  If only life was that  
easy... I'm afraid its not.
