Actually, Dean's proposed patch removed the -DSERVER_SUBVERSION
compile-time option, which I think I agree with, for the same philosophical
reasons he cited.  If you have two eays of doing the exact same thing, it
can become a nightmare to support.  Removing redundant functionality is a
good thing.  Perl is not a counter-example.  :)

Unless Ken wants to rescind his -1 on Dean's patch, I guess we should.
