One possible problem with using the additional minor number (5.11.1
instead of 5.11) is that `gnus-continuum-version' of 5.11.1 is greater
than that of all No Gnus versions:

I don't know how problematic this would be, but I would think that all
No Gnus versions should be higher than the 5.11* versions.  A simple
(but ugly?) solution would be to change the set the version to
5.11MMNN for "No Gnus v0.NN" with MM in (01...99).

With MM=90: "No Gnus v0.3"  ==> 5.119003
            "No Gnus v0.12" ==> 5.119012

With MM=99: "No Gnus v0.3"  ==> 5.119903
            "No Gnus v0.12" ==> 5.119912

Might be a little confusion for the user, but I don't think that users
are supposed to look at the continuum version at all.

Other suggestions?

Bye, Reiner.
