Right - this wasn't a problem in the monolith, where everything updated in
sync, but is now that we're modular.    This has been fixed for XFixes, and
the rest of the extensions should be fixed as well to use the number of the
version they implement, and not just the one from the proto headers.

(See 7e0aeebb8f8a5dff3cb4d88756e535dd70edeec4 for the Xfixes version of this.)
