I'll rephase "requirement" to "/strongly request/ the version of World 
Wind Web installed on OSGeo-Live be allocated a version number", for the 
reasons listed below.
Gabriele, do you think this is achievable?

I think I'm safe in saying that using version numbers is in line with 
best practice software engineering, and one of the indications of 
project maturity we wish to encourage.

Cheers, Cameron
