I don't know that yet.  It is very easy to do this in the pure Perl 
module (<POOF> it is already done,  minus new tests to confirm that it 
works the way I expect it to).  I have to look at how hard it will be to 
do the equivalent in C/XS code (which is what gets put into in bleadperl).

I appreciate the feedback, even it it does mean more work for me. ;-)  I 
want version objects to be as transparent to the user as possible, while 
still taming the beast that is $VERSION handling going back to at least
