They are internal functions.  Perhaps we should say that explicitly in
the doc strings.

The doc strings that should be reviewed are those for version<,
version=, and version<=.  They are the ``entry points'' to this group
of functions.  The rest are internal subroutines.

What description is needed, given that you can see the value?
