indeed. but we don't sell ... if you sell you can employ prople to 
change numbers (the dates in the context files are more an indication of 
whe something showed up)

anyhow, i have been thinking of generating (with each beta) an 
automatically added key 'changedate' or so for changed files but i need 
to be really bored (or watching a one star movie on tv) to do that
