Hmm. Boy, that distinction is awfully weird. How about we document
this in svn_version.h? I'm not aware of any other projects that have
x.y.z-dev being newer than x.y.z.

The problem is if you don't know what your next version number will
be. httpd sort of gets around this by having stable/unstable version
numbers. (APR sort of has this same problem - there isn't an ability
to release unstable releases in its versioning scheme.) -- justin
