Ah, okay, I wasn't thinking of this as like an unstable "channel" for
people to stick to, but that makes sense.

That could interfere with versions like 126.96.36.199 that sometimes occur.
Conceptually I could imagine something like maybe 188.8.131.52.120917, but I
don't remember what all the various version rules are for deb and rpm.
And I don't think OS X can handle more than a certain number of version
segments, or something?
