I agree, and add my -1. There are lots of other ways to tag an unstable
version, two of which we're acquainted with:

    * Apache says x.y.z-dev *before* releasing x.y.z. (This is also
      GCC's way, I believe.)
    * BDB starts with x.y.0, making patch "releases" in between, then
      declares x.y.z as stable (e.g., the stable releases were 4.0.14,
      4.1.25 and 4.2.50 -- not 4.0.0, 4.1.0 and 4.2.0)

I prefer the Apache way, which means we release 1.0.0, then bump the
trunk to 1.1.0-dev. Patch releases from the 1.0 branch would be 1.0.x.
We can tag 1.1 prereleases with date stamps, e.g., tags/1.1.0-20040513,
with "svn --version --quiet" saying "1.1.0-dev"
