Any chanche that "most of the files" are identical from version to version?
In that case you could create a "unison-base" package and 4-5 "small"
packages with maybe only the main executable.

BTW: but does the protocol REALLY change ni EACH version? It seems that,
even not wanting to be retro-compatible, it would have more "sense" to
have a "protocol version2 and require that THAT be identical instead...
But oh well, if you say that developement has stopped, I guess there's
no canche.

BTW2: but if developement has really stopped, won't this program bit-rot
pretty fast?
