Try transforming the "internal-ignore-me-please" revision number into a
"build" number or something like that. Then you'll have "version 1.0 build
138", and maybe you'll get that fuzzy warm feeling once again.

Or maybe you can transform your "can-be-useful-and-meaningful-release"
into "I'll-create-a-meaningfull-release-when-it's-really-so" instead of
having a new release every time a developer decides that a more correct
name for his private method "addClient()" would actually be
"createClient()" :-).

Cheers,
