Excuse me, I really misunderstood you. My point is that development "by
example" is evil. Examples never show general rule, that's ultimate
limitation of any example. Developers should know that.

Well, it's possible to add one more example with usual full-roster
response and ver="HASH-OF-ROSTER", and replace `ver's in iterm-pushes
with some pseudo-random strictly increasing sequence - that way will
illustrate implementation guidelines a bit better.

Anyway, I really doubt that content of `ver' attribute in examples
matters that much. IMHO, any content is good enough.
