So call the CVS version 21.4.-999 and let the pretests use -998 -997 etc.
That should be enough I think (hope :-)

I really wish we could agree on renumbering the next release from trunk to 22.1.

It is the first major release in YEARS, so it warrants a new major release 

And it could mark the start of a new bug-fix numbering scheme:

CVS version:  22.1.-999
Pretests:     22.1.-998 ... 22.1.-1
Initial release: 22.1  (or 22.1.0)
Bug fixes:    22.1.1, 22.1.2, ...

Minor releases: 22.2, 22.3, ...

I hereby offer to make all the necessary changes!
