Well, it's not totally anathema to me, but it strikes me as ugly and I
don't see what it buys us.

I reiterate that we should consider limiting ourselves to making
version-numbered releases on stable branches only, and not making
"development" releases. If you look at the larger body of free software
projects out there, most of them do not make a frequent practice of
making development releases after they reach 1.0. The big example of a
project which does so is the Linux kernel, which historically hasn't had
a publically accessible repository to pull from. (And it has much less
frequent development releases now that it does have such a repository.)
