If we do decide to change the numbering strategy, there are quite a
few small details that probably ought to be fixed while we're at it.
I think it'd be a good idea to start separating "devel" or "betaN"
with a dot, for instance, like "10.devel" not "10devel".  But it's
likely premature to get into those sorts of details, since it's not
clear to me that we have a consensus to change at all.
