I absolutely do not see a difference between {{dev}} and {{SNAPSHOT}}. Can 
someone enlighten me?

> Add "dev" string item into ComparableVersion

> We're using a popular Gradle plugin "gradle-git" ( from Andrew Oberstar ) to 
> implement Semantic Versioning with Continuous Deployment. There's a strategy 
> supported by gradle-git that defines a "dev" stage when we have something 
> uncommitted on a developer branch, which is very useful. Some examples to 
> demonstrate the "dev" scenario can be found here: 
> https://github.com/ajoberstar/gradle-git/wiki/Release%20Plugins#how-do-i-use-the-opinion-plugin
> However, current version of  
> org.apache.maven.artifact.versioning.ComparableVersion does not support "dev" 
> stage since there's no item "dev" in the field _QUALIFIERS of nested class 
> StringItem. And since this is a private static final field, it is not able to 
> be overwritten by inheritance. Can we add the "dev" item into _QUALIFIERS ?
