version numbers

I don't know if that's the major disadvantage. I'd say it's nice to have
backup copies of files, but not when it's achieved by hanging little warts
on the end of the file names. Version numbers, and perhaps the older files
themselves, should be hidden until asked for.

But if you want an example of the worst way to use version numbers,
check out the namespace editor.
