Reverted back to the original code: 
The code split the version number and look at the 1st or 2nd element, it 
thus works for both the current format and the proposed one, e.g. for 
1.7.0, it compares with the 2nd element, and for the proposed 
MAJOR.MINOR.FU.*, the 1st or MAJOR.

The last scenario to work on is if FSP is set on the Validator instead 
of SchemaFactory. With that, I'm looking at refactoring the way 
properties are represented so that they carry state. It would then be 
cleaner to pass them from SchemaFactory over to Schema and then 
Validator. It's a bit of work. Fortunately, we only have three of them 
to deal with.
