Thats one of the worst ideas one can have when working with CVS. Try to
get a clear idea about the difference between a version and a revision.
Those revision numbers should be ignored completely, they are for CVS's internal
purposes. Use tags to keep track of your versions. If you think, the current 
state of your
work represents version 0.1, tag it with something as VER_0_1 (you can't use 
dots in tag names).
