If I read the release procedure correctly both
OpenLayers.VERSION_NUMBER values are manually set to "Release-x.y" in
the SVN tag. So no confusion for releases.

In trunk we use the $Revision$ keyword, so you're right, the values in
OpenLayers.js and SingleFile.js differ. I'm not sure I understand the
purpose of using $Revision$ here, as the latter is the revision number
in which the file (OpenLayers.js or SingleFile.js) changed. So, to me,
the VERSION_NUMBER string has no valuable meaning for the trunk.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
