Subject Re: Version numbers for plugins of external apps

I prefer A.  Although I'm all for making things easier for a user I  
think they should be choosing a plugin after doing some research and I  
would hope that the documentation that led them to the plugin would  
have outline the requirements.  Also, when we ge to the point where a  
plugin might actually tolerate more than one release we won't be  
inclined to release new plugins with a version change where there is  
no code change.
