Can you add the revision number to Moneydance downloads?

Moneydance downloads use a generic filename when downloading.

Suggested behavior:
Moneydance downloads should include some kind of versioning information as part of the download filename.

Why is this desirable:
In my case, I maintain a library of downloads, (for everything), that includes the name of the program and its version number. This allows me to keep track of what I have already downloaded and helps me understand when a new download is desirable.

Likewise, if a particular download fails and/or goes all pear-shaped for whatever reason, I can revert to the previous installed version.

    just a user - quite a few of us maintain a set of versioning downloads, and rename them by hand. Doing this automatically (i.e. you download with a version name) might be nice, but we haven't seen such coming from IK.

    I just add the version and build numbers during the save function when downloading.

    Moneydance uses a build system to create the downloads and populate the download site. I would expect adding version numbering of any sort to the file names would complicate this process.
