gnus-continuum-version is not monotonous?

I'm wondering about the "gnus-continuum-version" function. Shouldn't it
return larger version numbers for newer Gnus versions, as the name of
the function suggests?

It returns for the Gnus version included in Emacs 23.1:
  (gnus-continuum-version "Gnus v5.13")     ->  5.13

but for yesterday's snapshot (gnus-CURRENT-20091115.tar.gz):
  (gnus-continuum-version "No Gnus v0.11")  ->  5.110011

So is there another way for obtaining a version number that increases
monotonously with time? I'm looking for something that could be used for
ordering of package versions in a distribution.
