I think leaving a gap is confusing; using minor-minor numbers mirrors
what's actually happening quite well, and since it's used by most
projects out there, it's very familiar and informative to users.

Since the code changes to use minor-minor numbers appear to be (heh)
minor, what's the problem with using them?
