With Alan's approach, I suppose a wildly
ambitious programmer could also support version
control, although I am not aware of a single
user-written program that does that.

To clarify, I know that lots of people like you will provide a foobar8, foobar7, etc. when you release a new version. By version control, I was thinking of how Stata does it, e.g.

version 7: foobar

which would cause foobar to revert to its version 7 behavior. I don't know of any user written programs that do that, i.e most programmers just seem to write a foobar7, a foobar8, etc. But, I could be missing some.
