Philippe is right on this one. MC itself does not impose any meaning  
on version numbers. MCC should work fine with that. But the "update"  
function relies on a specific numbering scheme, which implies a  
certain style of development, mimicing CVS HEAD.

OTOH, I think MCC could be made a bit more robust against the case  
Ron describes - like, if the same number is seen twice, simply use  
the version that sorts first alphabetically.
