Andrew Straw has emphasized that the current strategy of appending the 
SVN version number to development versions of the SVN tree makes it hard 
to do version sorting.

His proposal is to not change the version number until the first beta 
comes out. 

In other words, the trunk should not be 1.1 but 1.0dev?

Are there any opposing opinions to this change.  I personally think that 
is a confusing numbering scheme because 1.0dev seems to imply it's the 
development for version 1.0 instead of 1.1.  But, if  several others 
think it's a good idea to support easy-sorting of version numbers, then 
I will conceed.

Perhaps we can have a version 'number' as 1.0plus?
