  Concur, we have no good way of representing something like 0.11.0-devel
from an rpm Name-Version-Release and be sure it won't  break down the
road if we change our mind on the final naming scheme, while something
like 0.10.90 convey the intent while still being compatible with the
existing numbering scheme (plus it eventually forces you to release the
new version ;-)
