Subject: RE: [search-ws] eliminate version parameter

The need for a version number is based on the idea that you'd use the
same URL for multiple versions of the protocol.  Change the URL for
incompatible versions and the version number is no longer necessary.

I'm not concerned about dropping it.

Subject: [search-ws] eliminate version parameter

Note the suggestion on the SRU list to drop the version parameter.   I
responded that doing so would take away the ability for different
to interoperate.   But thinking more about it more, I'm not sure.

This would take some thinking through - using different base URLs to for
different versions, and exposing the names and versions via explain, a
client would know the server version so there would never be a mismatch.

I think eliminating the version parameter makes sense.

What do you think?
