But that doesn't help the need of module version dependency checking 
within the coded module.  For that I've just uploaded Module 
Versions[1] to CVS.  I've attached it to D5 for now.  I'll get a D6 tag 
going tomorrow.  The module should work for either and is aimed at 
Development and Developers only.
