Ah yes.  Because at the time it seemed like 3.1 was about to go out
within a couple of days.  Versioning the jar file was important for the
release, but I had no confidence that I would be able to create a proper
patch in time for the release -- so we decided that the hack would do. 
As it happened, I did come up with a proper patch the next day, but only
applied it to the trunk for fear of destabilizing the branch.

Yes -- I agree.  I don't think any of us thought about the impact of the
branch patch post 3.1... :-(

Thanks for looking into this David.
