I also agree that upping the version number is not the way to go.
But changing the docs and hoping people see them when their
installation fails is also not the way to go. People get a certain
impression in the initial install, and when there's a problem during
installation and in the docs it essentially says "we know there's a
problem b0rking your installs and we know exactly how to fix it but
haven't fixed it yet" gives off a rather negative vibe if you ask me.

I do agree with Kimmo about package checksums and such though also,
but I do believe that it can't be left alone.
