if 2.0.48-dev reports as 2.0.48 then I think that is the proper behavior.

as with any change in version, it's the different features that make it 
interesting, not the same ones.  so reporting 2.0.47 for 2.0.48-dev would be 
counter productive - if you're a developer and working on a test that 
excercises a new feature in the -dev version, you want it to run the new 
tests on 2.0.48 but not 2.0.47.  downgrading the -dev version would make it 
impossible to insert have_min_apache_version() logic in the tests prior to 
release, and remove what is otherwise a nice migratory path.

was this just a thought, or is there a situation you are running into that 
prompted your suggestion?  if the latter, maybe we can work on some other 
API that suited your needs?  as I've been writing tests against development 
features for a while now, I'm quite happy with the current behavior :)
