 > This does not matter, because, with my suggestion, the update policy can
 be set per theme/plugin by the website administrator based on their
 knowledge of how that particular theme/plugin uses versioning.

 Moreover, because plugin/theme "version numbers vary wildly" is why a more
 flexible finer-grained webadmin-controlled approach to automatic updates
 is needed, IMO :)

 [Adding UI as focus but really mean UX from webadmin POV.]
