Version info in distribution file names

In order to reduce download time and money I recommend
to append version info to all distribution files.

AFAIK the 5r7 release comprises: --> version?
  X11.tgz --> version?
  GCC.tgz --> version?
  Modules-36.tgz --> version 36?
  mulinux-5r7.tgz --> version 5r7

How can one know whether the first three files have been updated
in the ftp-server with the last release when they don't have version info?
The change history in README.change at least says that there has
been some rework with X apps, so I suspect that X11.tgz has been
updated too.
