If you change V2.5.1, it's no longer V2.5.1. It's a new release. You
can't have 2 different versions of your software "in the wild" with
the same version number. It's not a Subversion limitation, it's just
plain bad practice to do that.

Well, you can, but I don't want to be part of the group that has to
support such a decision.

Move forward. If someone is running V2.5.1 and encounters a bug that's
fixed in V2.5.5, upgrade them to V2.5.5. Or branch V2.5.1, call it
V2.5.1.1 or V2.5.1a and backport your fix to that line of code.

But don't ever reuse release numbers.
