[Bf-committers] File versionning and subversion bumps

I've noticed total inconsisteny in the versioning code another day.

The rule are:

- We don't do subversion bump for minor change and do DNA_find_elem() to
see if versnioning is needed or not
- Those changes are getting accumulated in the bottom of current versioning
function (currently it's do_versions_270())
- Bigger changes in storage might do subversion bump
- Subversion (well, actually version) bump happens just before RC1
- bump in subversion or version requires moving all the versioning code
which was not in the if(!VERSION_ATLEAST) block into new block

As for the question how to process now: wait for the next subverison bump
we'll need and move all the vesioning code into it. No special "cleanup" or
so needed for that.

And i don't see need to have that block. Just something like:

void do_versions_270() {
  /* Put pending versioning code here. */
