What I was suggesting is that we don't need to break the current encoding
at all.
We have a major.minor.fix version encoded and documented in the header file
that we can continue to represent in semantic terms.
So anyone decoding those items will actually get the correct result (from a
user perspective).
Those using it for conditional compilation checks continue to work.

BTW thanks for the correction on "a" to "1" for the patch release (wasn't
being careful there).
