 From R 2.9.0 we have the concept of versions for Rd files. The 
manual is clear about the differences but I am unsure as to what I 
should do about my existing packages. Is it recommended that I set 
the version to 1.1 and then fix the errors R CMD check helpfully 
points out and then subsequently do the same for later versions (the 
manual mentions version 2 is coming)? What benefit will I gain?
