I always thought that we need change version numbering, but never found
something usefull.

Best I can come with is multiple 3rd svn version by 100 adn add tsvn
"subversion" to it.
So 3 TSVN versions with svn 1.7.1 would be 1.7.100, 1.7.101, 1.7.102,
then 2 versions of TSVN with svn 1.7.2 1.7.201 and 1.7.2 1.7.202 or
1.7.203 and 1.7.204
However there is problem with svn 1.7.0.

-2 sounds ever better to me, but not sure if there is no limitation of 4
16bit int for versioning. Or there would be two versioning text and
number based?
