That works well with things like Subversion which ensure that the  
"revision number" is monotonically increasing.  My understanding of  
git is that it favors decentralized workareas or repositories without  
a project-wide unique version number, and it's revisions look like  
"commit c82a22c39cbc32576f64f5c6b3f24b99ea8149c7" in the logs, which  
do not compare sensibly when considered as numbers.
