Done.  See http://drupal.org/node/152819 if you happen to care.

All "version" definitions from all .info files on all branches of the  
contrib repo are now gone.

All relevant handbook docs have been updated to tell people not to do  

In the future, if you check out from CVS and see "version" defined,  
please file an issue with the maintainer and scold them. ;)
