I am uncomfortable with changing the version string in this way, 
especially on the release branches.  I am also uncomfortable even in 
changing it as Mike suggested. I think I know some users that explicitly 
expect and parse the 4 part version string.    If you like I can check 
with them, but I would rather not go down this path if we can avoid it.
