Well...if you have /usr/bin/rep version 0.91.1 and /usr/lib/rep/0.91.0 
/usr/lib/rep/0.91.1 the former libdir is useless as you'll so or so have to 
re-install librep 0.91.0 in order for the correct interpreter.

>From that point of view I agree with Kim for librep and rep-gtk. Primarly you 
would be right for Sawfish, but as it links to a specific version of librep 
(which might not be abi-compatible) it's also a good idea to remove the 
version from Sawfish.

And see transistion of animator modules or edge-flip <> edge-actions -- the old 
modules remain and may cause problems with the new ones, if loaded from user's 
resource file (imagine old edge-flip loaded, while edge-actions is, too).

Defnitively. I'll do that for 0.91.1/1.8.1
