Hmm.  I think Lofton's reasoning about keeping track of the document when 
there are small editorial fixes - does get too busy.

I think that option 2 is good - if we can do it for major changes to the 
document.  For example, this new version is not just different in adding 
the intro and a new section - but if you notice, I changed the name.

But, (and now I'm waffling) we should go with the option that takes the 
least amount of your time to prepare and publish the document.  Also, I 
guess the question is - why would anyone care about the previous documents?

O.K., now that I've thought about it ---- I don't have any strong feeling, 
but if I had to take a stand - as long as its not more work --- #2 - the 
version-chain shows that we have been working and have produced multiple 
versions.
