oh, it looks like i missed something,
but hey, what is the reason to introduce the numbering, while we
already having a numbering
scheme which going straight from MC?
I think its a most easiest way for anyone to tell: i have a VM , based
on VMMaker-bla-bla
instead of X.Y.Z
so, you can quickly determine where you should look at and try to fix it ,
instead of "converting" a numeric version to corresponding MC package.
As to me it looks like an unnecessary brain muscles excersise :)
