IMO having tags in trunk where branches where made, makes sense, but refering
to main devel as a <last release>-whatever num is silly
Our development model is not even remotely matching this
we dont focus primarely on releases and then after each release focus on
the next.

We focus primarely on trunk with releases being hated and branched of outdated
and largely unmaintained (except one lone devel)
and that are officially strongly recommanded not to be used.

Iam sure its technically possible to have revissions as

to keep them matching, not saying that would be easy or i would suggest that to
be done.
