No.  Again, this was intended to be usable _instead_ of the MMN because
the MMN has no meaning when you branch.  You can't juse ignore the last
two digits.  Changes are introduced in betas, people use betas, for a
module to be able to check something it either has to be monotonic or they
have to do silly things like > 1030006 || == 1030000.

Unfortunately, it is now of no use because it was poorly conceived, not
discussed before implementation, and didn't replace the MMN.
