*scratches head* I still don't see a difference.
2.a <= 2.a.b < 3.a
2.a <= 3.a < 3.a.b2

How so? Maybe you mean to say that 2.a > 2.* ?
I find that rather confusing.

How did that become broken? What does 2.pl0 even mean? Do you have
an example? I'm certain that is against our naming conventions.
I'm concerned because I have a function that converts a package
version into a 128 bit integer, such that if the package version A is
greater than package version B, then f(A) > f(B). If the versioning
rules are being changed, I wanna know (and I'd also like to know why).
