I think I could find at least a dozen squeak developers here who
would agree with me that if 3.10.2-build was a fixed point, it's
a bad name for a release, and if it was a moving point, it would
be a bad place to start the legal process.

Had that been released as 3.10.3, or 3.11, your point would have merit.
