I like the plan of adopting even-numbers for stable releases.  So, if 
you have an odd-number then it is from the development trunk. 

Thus, after 1.1.SVN_number builds will come a stable 1.2 build

Now, this doesn't solve the problem of what to do on the ver1.0 branch.

I propose to do what Andrew suggested and change the version number on 
the ver1.0 branch to 0.9.9 until release 1.0 comes out.

That way builds from the SVN tree will have the SVN version number 
attached to


and will be "smaller" than


Once 1.0 comes out then the development branch version number will be 
changed to 1.0.0
