As Duncan said, I misspoke slightly.  I was actually assuming  
something like the rules used for shared libraries:  given a version  
X.Y.Z, X changes with API changes, Y with large non-API changes, Z  
with minor patches, and the resolution algorithm chooses the latest  
version with the same X (and, on some systems, tries to match Y as  
well), and older versions are never accepted.
