I doubt anyone really "needs" them but I have found it to be a nice
self-documenting feature so far, matter of minor convenience. Until
very recently dmd releases has plenty of breaking changes and
practical D users usually waited some time before updating to fresh
release until those issues are taken care of. In that sense
differentiating between programs that work only on latest release and
ones that work on at least last two can be pretty useful.
Guess that is only applicable to AUR stuff.
It is nothing of real importance but question is, what harm does
explicit versioning do?
