I think moving to more conventional version numbers (e.g. adding a new
level for `minor releases') would be a good thing, because it tells
users what they're getting without them having to download the whole
package first.  Since emacs is a _very large_ download, this is actually
somewhat important (many people don't want to download a minor bugfix
release if they're happy with what they've got).

I agree that it would entail a bit of work to implement, but I doubt
it's really that much...
