Just for info, it is used by the mavenizer too but there is no issues,
tested it time ago with 4.10.x
One particularity is with x == 0, it generates 4.10.0-SNAPSHOT instead of
the classic 4.10.x which is useful when you want to mavenize the develop
branch and it is well taken in account by IntelliJ

Ugh.  Thanks for checking it out.

So the SDK name still showed up as 4.10?  I suppose we could just leave
the version element at 4.9.9 with a comment saying we had to do that for
FB.  But I wonder if the version element is used elsewhere?
