Version numbers exist for a reason. Opensuse's method of patching but

No way.

I was under the impression that pretty much all of the standard
enterprise vendors worked this same way? Eg., SLES doesn't change
version numbers, but backports the patches into the baseline versions
of the packages to minimize the risk of something suddenly blowing up
since the requirements can't be met. And since openSuSE is basically
the origination for most things SLES, why would we expect anything
different?
