For Pidgin, we have found it helpful to, immediately after release,
increment the version number and append 'devel'.  This helps us
identify those users who are using a development version which may
*not* have a particular feature, even though its version number would
otherwise suggest it.  Monotone does, of course, provide the revision
identifier to help with this, but I for one don't know much about a
revision after a quick glance at the rev ID.  ;-)

For example, in this case, after cutting the 0.42 release, nvm would
immediately be changed to 0.43devel.
