No, but a collection of data might have been gathered over a period of  
weeks by a dozen versions of a tool. Software developers will often do a  
build each day, and even ordinary users upgrade from time to time -  
especially tools that auto-upgrade, or like Hera have continuous updating  
as well as major version changes.

So although a single session won't necessarily use more than one version,  
a collection of EARL that yu query is IMHO pretty likely to do so.
