Um, it's obvious you missed my point. Currently, the version number in 
his screen is for the major release of Drupal. Modules have many many 
smaller releases during the life cycle of a Drupal release. Knowing that 
a module has been released for 4.8.0 doesn't mean you have the latest 
version, because active development of a module could mean that you're 
out of date within a week. Basing module numbers off the core version 
doesn't allow any indication of module version and is thus useless.
