Really? I'd guess that most often one wants/needs to query the protocol
version of a module. After all, the module version doesn't matter as
long as it behaves in a defined way. I usually emmit a protocol version
header for all modules that support a defined API/protocol. You could
require the client to do the same (i.e. send a 'X-need-foo-version: >2'
header with the request).
