This did cause some (albeit minimal) pain on transition to CocoaPods 1.0. I think Podfile.lock records the version of CocoaPods, but I don't think that actually helps in this regard.

This is correct. The Podfile.lock records the last used version, but does not enforce it in any way. The officially recommended approach is using Bundler’s Gemfile/Gemfile.lock to ensure consistency of used versions of the CP gem.
