That's a very labor-intensive proposition. Do YOU want to go through a flag 
EVERY wiki entry the day a new version of MythTV is released? (Remember 
you'll have to check edit dates, too, just in case somebody's rushed in with 
some brand-new information before you get around to checking an entry.) Short 
of a coordinated effort to do this immediately, it won't get done. IMHO, the 
idea of version-flagging every wiki entry as its made makes far more sense. 
Ideally this would be part of the submission process, but I have no idea if 
the wiki software supports such a thing.
