Realistically, though, we're more likely to end up with 10.0.1 than
10.1.  I don't think we're anywhere near plumbing the depths of the
stuff which will break because folks are parsing our version numbers
with regexes.  In more major software, this will break nagios

I'm not happy with it, but I believe that's where we'll end up.
