One reason to keep an ERC version is in case anybody wants to do a
release of ERC separate from an Emacs release.  Having proper version
numbers would allow users to install a newer ERC from ELPA and also have
the right thing happen if they subsequently install a newer Emacs
containing an even newer version of ERC.
