Well, I have *never* encountered that `1.00rc0' means a release
candidate for 1.01.  Have you?

:-)  For `political reasons' I need a `1.00' in the version string.
Otherwise, I would be just happy with 0.99.91 or so.

Well, some tests are quite useful.  It's just the version number
checking that I consider... limited.  Anyways, the problem with
`git-version-gen' are real.  There might be good reasons to have, say


to indicate a special modification of 2.17, and git-version-gen
doesn't like it.
