I strongly disagree. I'd much rather have control and know exactly which 
version I'm using with each application. Admittedly in this case the changes 
may be mostly invisible tweaks to accomodate iOS differences, but stuff always 
needs testing, and there can easily be unexpected effects.

I'd much rather have to do a small amount of deliberate work upfront when I 
want to switch to a new version, than have to spend more time diagnosing 
mysterious behaviour when I did it without meaning to. That's especially going 
to happen to an app where I haven't done a new build in a while.

My feature request, on the contrary, would be for for Monte to add a standard 
"mergVersion" function to every external in the suite, so that we can always 
verify exactly what we've got (and so that app error reports, for example, can 
include this information by default).

My AUS$ 0.02,

Ben
