Oh, I guess if we wanted to be fancy, we could make the modversion
information be part of the hash.

Because we already have that, and that's kind of what it is. But I
wasn't actually thinking that fancy - I'd leave the C hash as just the
name hash with no type info.

Unless somebody really wants to do that modversions thing. It *would*
be a very natural thing to do in that "link using hashes" world view..
