And another thing: you should put a comment in it saying

  * This implements the algorithm for comparison of version strings
  * specified by Debian and now widely adopted.  The detailed
  * specification can be found in the Debian Policy Manual in the
  * section on the `Version' control field.  This version of the code
  * implements that from s5.6.12 of Debian Policy v3.8.0.1
  * http://www.debian.org/doc/debian-policy/ch-controlfields.html#s-f-Version

or the moral equivalent.
