intentional, so that the someone using the signed binary tar ball would be clearly distinguishable
from something that someone had built? Wouldint think so, but I'm not too up on ASF release
procedures.

That's the convention we've used in Lucene projects.  The idea is that 
users should have to go out of their way to build something named 
lucene-2.0.0.jar, since they're likely to patch things.  Only the 
official builds should look like official builds, everything else should 
look like a developer build of some version subsequent to the release build.

Yes, this confuses a lot of folks and probably deserves an FAQ.
