I still think that a reasonable way of keeping the two concepts would
be putting the revision number in a fourth slot of the version. It may
even be that official revision (those stored under tags) lacks that
part, but I think that, among SVN developers, the revision number is a
somewhat more interesting thing to have at hand. Current svn would
report something line "0.16.1@4326", although some one speaking of
simply "0.16.1" implies the official release.

hth,
ciao, lele.
