The version information built into these files is a different format than
TCMD's Help \ About and the internal version variable.

D:\>echo %_4ver.%_build
10.00.44

D:\>echo %@VERINFO[%COMSPEC%]
10.0.44

These files all have 10.0.44:
4nt.exe
English.dll
EnglishD.dll
French.dll
FrenchD.dll
German.dll
GermanD.dll
ide.exe
ShrAlias.exe
TakeCmd.dll
tcc.exe
tcmd.exe

I had suggested (I think before V9 beta) that minor versions always be 2
digit strings and build numbers be 3 digit strings, with leading zeros as
needed, and even that the major version also have a leading zero for the
older versions. My TCSTART (shared with older versions, also known as
4START) I create a variable VER which conforms to my suggestion, e.g.,
06.01.245.

Only because my regression testing expected the two to be the same,
and my flavor of Monkishness likes them to be the same.

So, no, not in the practical sense. Only theoretically.
