I don't care so much about naming conventions.  It would just be
nice to be able to bump the version in development as often as
you like without usurping release version ids (major or minor).
You can still use minor numbers while still not throwing some away:

	6.0 Branch - libc.so.6.1000
	    libc bump - libc.so.6.1001
	    libc bump - libc.so.6.1002
	6.0-Release - libc.so.6.0
	    libc bump - libc.so.6.1003
	6.1-Release - libc.so.6.1
	...
