Presumably you have some sort of procedure for releasing software,  
("Does it pass all the unit tests? Website updated? Okay, now ship it!"). 
Perhaps what you need is to add to that procedure a unit test that you 
run before each release (but not during development) which fails if you 
haven't updated the version number.

Also you should consider submitting a feature request for listdir() to 
accept the empty string as equivalent to '.'.
