We could drop the micro release altogether and just use the revision
number in its place.

1.2.4.5432 --> 1.2.5432
1.3.0.7654 --> 1.3.7654

We try to correlate with SVN's major and minor release numbers, but not
with their micro release numbers, so having micro release and revision
in our own releases is redundant. FWIW, Microsoft does something similar
with Windows. My Win2K box is 5.00.2195.
