I think Pulla refers to the version numbering in the JCR API, not the
Jackrabbit release versioning scheme. Which I find to be weird, too,
since the leading "1." never changes and is redundant information.
It's not a difficult thing for an application to remove that prefix
for displaying simpler version numbers or to simply count the versions
themselves, but I wonder if there was any reason for this decision. A
future feature maybe? Something like branching?
