    Because "Numeric qualifiers will always be greater than prefixed integer qualifiers, e.g.
"1.1-1" > "1.1-beta1". The qualifier is a float that is an extra, but if the qualifier
is not present "infinity" should always win over it. It shouldn't matter what's "more natural"
seeming: this is an underscored internal var that's never seen by users of the lib.
