I assumed he meant the former, e.g. 21.4.-2.x would always be a CVS
version and 21.4.-1.y would always be a prelease (or something).

By the latter, I assume you meant e.g. 21.4.0.-x and having -X count `up
towards 0'.  The disadvantage of that is you have to pick a very high X
to avoid inadvertantly hitting 0 before you're ready...
