Hi Iris,

Do you consider an option to let community reuse JDK versioning style for their own purposes. Probably defining an interface with basic default methods which can be extended by various libraries to provide unified way to gather version information from MANIFEST.MF, ClassLoader's jars and simply to allow developers inventing one wheel lesser.
