I'm not sure I see the need for this added level of complexity.. Can you
give me a concrete example? Different "versions" of a single feature should
be treated as different options for that feature. If I only support "ver 2"
of something, thats the only one I list. And if you only support ver 1, then
we can't do whatever it is we were trying to do. Seems cut and dry enough
