A couple of ideas:

 From the looks of the development that seems to mean a new number a  
day every hour.  Unless we make the definition of a feature specific  
to something.  I would think you want to couple a Re-visioning scheme  
to Mikes validation effort some how.  Bump the revision if and only  
if you pass some level of testing after some number of features have  
been added.  Maybe you do this once a month for changing the revision  
number.  And if we want we could keep track in the ChangeLog the SVN  
# of new features so you know when they were introduced.
