What would that constant represent?  From the code of emacs-version>=
you proposed, it would seem that it would be say the "2" in
emacs-21.3.2, representing the second instance of 21.3 the user built
in the given directory, or the "50", in emacs- (or
whatever).  If so, patch-level 50 for emacs-21.3 could represent the
50th time that a "compulsive Emacs builder" built Emacs-21.3 or it
could represent a snapshot of emacs-21.3.50.  That would not seem to
make a whole lot of sense.  Or how exactly would you define that
