Maybe use a version that is not zero padded.
Is 1.01 supposed to be the same as 1.1, or not?

I have no opinion. The motivation is in packages/README:

    This cron job only creates a new package when the "version" (as
    specified in the foo-pkg.el or in the "Version:" header) of a
    package is modified. This means that you can safely work on the next
    version here without worrying about the unstable code making it to
    GNU ELPA, and simply update the "version" when you want to release
    the new code.

Seems sensible. Surely there needs to be some way to prevent every
change going live immediately?
