I am in the midst of working on a plan for how file versions will be revised as the Whidbey versions of .NET Framework and Visual Studio are developed.  The team I am working with is very curious whether any customers directly poke at file versions inside the .NET Framework or Visual Studio file sets and then use that to determine some other behavior.  Does anyone out there look at file versions for VS or .NET Framwork files?  We're hoping that most people use APIs so that they are insulated against changes we make to file versions, but I thought it was worth throwing this out there.

For those who are curious, the current plan looks something like this:
