You mean like this? -- CVS leading up to 21.5.1         -- Pre-test for 21.5.1
21.5.1             -- Release from CVS head
21.5.x             -- Bug-fix release (x > 1)

I *think* that should satisfy both of us.  I'm happy with it; how
about you?

The reason for having separate version numbers for CVS
(x.y.0.50.yyyymmdd and x.y.0.9z) is that I think emacsbug.el needs to
be able to differentiate them, and that seems easiest to implement
(not to mention most similar to other GNU programs).  I'm not really
attached to it outside of those two reasons, and I'm not at all
attached to x.y.0.9z vs. x.y.0.90.yyyymmdd.  The date just seems less
necessary for pre-tests, since they change less often.  The visual
tagging it provides could justify it, though.
