I think it would be a good idea for the request to "leave the version
# for stats" to be removed, as well as removing the version # from
the HTML output by WP by default. Showing this information makes
versions with security vulnerabilities "easy pickins" for those who
want to do damage.
I'd suggest adding a config option or a text file hidden pref for
displaying this information or not (like PunBB and other web apps
do), but we all know how Matt responded to my last such suggestion. ;)
