Hi Maiko

Yes, you really should. Nobody cares if you reach version 2.0.1248, but 
everybody cares if they load version 2.0.1248 which is different from 
the version 2.0.1248 that you previously released.

The golden rule is: even if you change only one byte in a program, you 
must give it a new version number. Otherwise everybody gets *very*
