in thread cache js code, but detect when it's changed?

Some browsers will not correctly cache URLs with a query, it's better to have the version be part of the URL. Here's what I did to one site:

I have the javascript in a folder called /js/ and I have a symbolic link to that folder with the version number, so the application spits out:

<script src="/js4/foo.js"></script>

He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.
