[OSM-dev] API: version number of newly created objects.

Hi,

I see in the api doc:
"Version numbers will most of the time begin at *1* and increase by
*1*every time an element is changed but this behaviour is not
guaranteed and
should not be relied upon"
I understand that phrase as "I cannot assume that a newly created object
will be at version 1".

As a creation PUT do not return the version number (AFAIK), does that mean
that we are suppose to do a "GET" on the newly created object to get the
version number?
