[jboss-user] [Installation, Configuration & Deployment] - Version number in JAR, SAR and EAR names

Is there a reason why version numbers are not included in all JAR, SAR, EAR. ?AR filenames. 

For example you have the following:

but all other JARs have no version number.

What about SARs etc. Why not:
jbossweb-tomcat-5.5.17.sar instead of jbossweb-tomcat55.sar
ejb3-rc9.deployer instead of ejb3.deployer

This would make finding out what version of what is installed trivial.

I also notice that ejb3.deployer\META-INF\jboss-service.xml defines mbean code="org.jboss.ejb3.JarsIgnoredForScanning"  which lists JARs literally minus version numbers, even though many, when downloaded from Apache et al, have version numbers (e.g. commons-collections.jar). Some entries have version numbers but do not match the versions we have upgraded to. Is there a list somewhere of such definitions (so I can upgrade them)?
