Well the good news is that we can (since this is a shell script aimed at the Pi install of nuScratch) be a bit less general and assuming that from now on vm versions are indeed MAJOR.MINOR-DATETIME format then we need only handle those. The script will go into the next Pi release and need not concern itself with dealing with older VMs.
