Thus spake cgmclellan:

The best practice is to include a version number in the filename of
your module. This avoids the problem you're describing.

E.g., if your module is called 'Battle of Foo', then it would be
appropriate to name successive versions of the module
Battle_of_Foo-1.0.vmod and Battle_of_Foo-1.1.vmod.
