As for Namazu 2.0.X, the function enhancing is scheduled not to be 
done in the future. (Only the bug fix)

However, it is likely to be enhanced in Namazu 2.2.X (It is thought 
that the format changes) to use the one other than "{cgi}" "{doc}".

By the way,
The buffer is similarly broken when VERSION is 10 characters or 
more though "{version}" is 9 characters. 
It doesn't become 10 characters or more in a usual release version. 
However, the one under development might exceed and gets 10 

 ex) 2.0.17pre1

The correction of stability version (stable-2-0) source of CVS has 
corrected and development version (HEAD) sources.
