Using -findfile- to get the path to the ado, opening the ado with -file-,

could be made to work.  Is there anything easier?

One additional complication is that there is nothing that says an ado file has to use the same version number throughout, e.g. different subroutines could use different version numbers. Would you need to track all of them, the highest one, the lowest one, or what?
