Re: Bump of release?

Shouldn't it *not* carry a version number? I mean it'll have a revision
number, but it shouldn't have a version number, not until the *next*
release.

If the code itself were to examine the expanded 'HeadURL' then,
when people do 'svn --version' the code can substitute in either the
revision number (if the URL looks like '..../trunk/..../blahblah.c')
and can substitute in the version/release number (if the URL looks like
'..../tags/0.16.2/..../blahblah.c' or whatever).

Okay, people are not able to say "I've got a problem after I installed
'0.16.1 + a bit'". They have to say "I have a problem with revision
4567". But the most recent previous released revision can be determined
from that.

Just a suggestion ...

Actually, that would be really nice because - at least with the
versions I've compiled up to about a month ago - I have to remember
to note down the revision number when I check out and compile, 'cos
otherwise later I'm unable to determine what revision to report a
problem with, I only have a compile date.
