I agree, and I'd like to see all the different editors tagging the
changes they make with the name of the editor and the version number
(potentially, if we continue to see a proliferation of clients, we
should make this compulsory).  For one thing, if bugs were found in a
particular version of a particular client this would facilitate the
correction of any errors introduced to the database.
