why is the release version not sufficient? 6.0, 5.4, etc..

for 6.3-cvs they are updated weekly(?) so there could be a "generated
$date$", but is that needed? each help page has its "last modified"
timestamp already, which is more important than the date its header was

i.e. description.html version is more important than g.module.html date.
