IMHO, that seems like a great way to cause trouble for unsuspecting
users. (Anyone remember KDE4.0?) Can you expand on why you think it's a
good plan?

Is there a system like X.beta1, X.beta2, ..., X.0 that is going to fit
the ordering system for most package managers? Bonus points if it works
in asciibetical order, too.
