You are absolutely right here and I should have seen that before. Didn't
take that (obvious) point into account at all.

I'll come-up with a working version scheme which won't have potential
for causing this misinterpretation and will make sure that the next
releases will use that other scheme.

Think the solution will either be to restart my own version numbering
which is completely independent from SVN's or go with the alternative
you presented.
