maybe just one variable, $theme_version, containing the major and minor version:
major being your idea of generation.

But are we only talking about users having problems because they
designed custom themes or custom versions of our 2 themes?

Or if someday we offer downloadable themes and we want those to work without
the user having to upgrade?
