[Esd-l] Distribution

I would like to request some changes in how the files are distributed.  I 
would like the actual files to be named with version numbers, so that it's 
easier to tell when a file has been changed/updated, and to keep the previous 
file available in case one needs to regress for some reason.

What I do is unpack the files from the tarballs, which do have version 
numbers, rename them with a numeric date, then use a symbolic link to the 
plain file name to update them.

Version numbers on the poisoned file list and the local rules, as well as on 
the main script, would be helpful.

Thanks for all the hard work!
