Definitely!  Parse as (\d+)\.(\d{3})(\d*) and you will be consistent 
with everything (the version.pm module splits on three digits like 
that).  The discussion "Improved Perl version numbering system" in 
perl56delta guarantees that:

	5.006_000 => v5.6.0
	5.006_001 => v5.6.1
	5.005_03  => v5.5.30

so the three digit subversions is pretty much set in stone.

The "suggestion" in the Camel to use /at least/ 2 significant decimal 
places was to prevent the 1.1...1.9, 1.10 (oops) problem.
