General rule of thumb is follow what's in the tarball filename if
possible. And the patchlevel isn't in it.

But putting the patchlevel in somewhere isn't a bad idea. I'd go with
something like this:

bash-4.0-1.pl16
bash-4.0-2.pl17
bash-4.0-3.pl18

... That is, follow the guidelines for a non-numeric post release:

(Even though it's technically numeric...)
