Okay, we good improve the version number in trunk images and treat them as
Even if we decide to not make a minor release but a major the tag can jump.
So, any suffix after the version number indicates the trunk stream.
Alpha = Open to any code submittions
Beta = Feature freeze, bug fixes only
Rc1...n = Some bugs fixed, next try
Rtm = Full code freeze, will be the one to release
Would this work?
