wow, version 20. Numeric must be the highest version numbered project

My philosophy is to change the major version number if you do ANYTHING that
might require changes in client code. In this case I changed things so that
if someone had their own way of building (such as a static build) they might
need to change their Makefile. I suppose I overdo it but version numbers are

I had a project that used an automatic system to up the version number every
time we made a build. We got to Basis 499 but then we made the next one 5.00
and stopped that system. Basis is now at a leisurely 12.0 after 16 years.
