Thanks much for catching and fixing my overzealousness.

I'm quite interested in making these transforms foolproof and
fully automatable in the future.  I've been wondering about
replacing the explicit version numbers in non-code files with
placeholders in git.  There are a bunch of issues there and I'm not
about to jump in and touch them without discussion.

Best,
Jesse
