Hi Ian.  The GNU gnulib project is considering adding a function
that would compare strings in the same way that dpkg compares
version numbers, as you can see in the thread here:

Is there a chance that you would be willing to contribute to the
FSF the actual code from dpkg for this?  (Otherwise, we will
probably have one person write a formal specification for the
version comparison algorithm, and then another person implement
something equivalent from that specification.)
