Well, I am not so sure about that.  The problem is, we are not talking
here about `specific minor version differences';  rather, 5.0-current as
of March 2000, and 5.0-current as of March 2001 (and 5.1-release as of
April 2001) will be very different.  5.0 just forked off 4.0, and has a
long time ahead, with lots of changes coming.

So basically, I think that 5.0* is as reasonable _today_ as 5.* is -
there is a good chance of additional hits tweaking to be done later this
