Oh, what an idiot I am!  No, it wasn't intentional, I'd completely
forgotten about Emacs 25.1.  :-(  It's too late to change either number,

However, the main thing is that version numbers are mainly for bug
reporting, and if (more likely, when) bug reports for CC Mode come in
from Emacs 25.1, I can assume they're from its own version of CC Mode,
and then check later when that's not the case.

I can see myself releasing 5.33.1 fairly soon, anyway, so hopefully that
will take some of the strain away from the version number mixup.

Thanks for telling me about this.
