I've found a problem using an application compiled with a previous version of 
core/base (around
jully 2002). 
A new  application has modified ~/GNUstep/Defaults/.GNUstepDefaults and make 
dictionary unreadable by the old application (sorry, I haven't kept the 
modified file but it 
was a number coded as 7200 in previous version now coded  <*I7200> or something 
like that).

It take me some time to guess why the application failed to run.
So is it possible to add versioning system in this kind of file so an new 
application won't badly
modify this file when the file version is older ? Or use different file names 
for incompatible version
(~/GNUstep/Defaults/.GNUstepDefaults.x.y) or something else.... ?

Now, I have to make ~/GNUstep/Defaults/.GNUstepDefaults owned by root, writable 
only by the owner 
and  readable by everyone (pplication fail to if it can't read the file) so old 
and new application can run..
