Just a data point: my users seem to be confused about the versioning
scheme.  There is common confusion about whether 7.2alpha6 is newer or
older than 7.2b.

I still like the idea of major.minor.micro, with even minor numbers
indicating stable releases, and odd ones indicating development
releases. :)
