No, that's what the human readable portion is for.

Personally I find the versioning information a waste of time in the
first place, it just obscures more of the subject line in mail readers.
A patch is going to be considered on its merits no matter how many times
it's been sent before, having a version number is often just depressing
(as with those PMIC patches).
