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.

[1nickt]: chacham I have wanted to, and dones so, and so stated in a reply, and been roundly downvoted 2-1. (I assume for attempting to censor.)
[1nickt]: pryrt yes, I see. There is no way to differentiate without forcing to a string and all sort of weird stuff. It is enough. User 42 can get creative if s/he wishes.
[chacham]: i sent him a private message expressing my displeasure.
[1nickt]: chacham It was worse than 2-1 ! almost 4-1 !
