The Finder shows CFBundleShortVersionString and the Get Info dialog shows CFBundleGetInfoString. Both of these are free-form as far as OS X is concerned, you can put anything you want in there. "Smalltalk vmVersion" includes CFBundleShortVersionString so there may be users expecting a certain format.

I still plan to have Etoys get folded back into Trunk. Just zero time to work on it myself.
