A version can even decrease when a developer decides his changes are not working and he reverts back. It's a string that is formed after a logic decided by every dev on his own. And every rule you write for Minion to detect a certain pattern of versioning will fail on most version numbers. So in the end you have hundreds of rules you have to weight and it will still be a guess that might fail.
Version numbers are only for the users... However the Curse Client is checking for your version its doing it right because I have never had a downgrade there even if I had a newer version from wowinterface.
