Is anyone besides Oliver and myself interested in package version
number reform? I'd really like to produce a `better' set of rules
for the handbook that eliminates some of the edge cases, and then
re-version the relatively few ports that don't fit the rules.
Oliver's PR is as good a starting point as any that I've seen--- it
goes further than our current rules and only conflicts with them in
