Here's what happened (version numbers here are not exact, but
used as example).

Before FC3 'went gold', work was happening in 'devel'.
When it got to revision 649, it was branched into an FC3 dir.
FC3 then got more updates and fixes, and eventually ended
up at rev 667.

Instead of incrementally adding each change that went
into FC3 one-by-one into devel/, I added them all
wholesale into rev 650 of devel.

So they contain pretty much the same stuff, but
due to the way I did the commits, it has a lower
number. I'm going to 'cheat', and bump up
rawhide a few hundred revs before I do another build
which should ease the confusion a little over
'which is newer'.
