Good coding practice discussions are wasted on me (you don't want me to 
look at your tex code -)

The versioning is abit special in te xdue to the fact thet some numbers 
en dup in registers and others as token list (string). I have considered 
changing that but it would also break some 'testing for tex version' so 
for now we have to accept this mix of tex/etex/pdftex inheritance.
