I can't talk for the others, but I haven't had much problems with the  
filtering/querying in the old system, or with figuring out the  
version information.  Figuring out what version someone is running,  
has not been a big issue for me.

+1 for removing x.y.z and optimizing for ease of use.  5.0-dev and  
6.0-dev are useful.
