What about having the Tomcat version number, e.g. "Tomcat 4.1.40", being
the entire _set of jars_? So that, if you upgrade one of the jars in the
package, you'd have to make a new Tomcat 4.1.41, with maybe a little
"human readable diff" textfile for each minor-release: "Jasper,
because of a security hole (http://buglink) in". This means that
a Tomcat version is simply a tag on the "slice" of its components.
