See, that's the problem.  We're up in the hundreds.  Maybe we should've
started formatting these with '%04d' way back when but that certainly
wouldn't help now.

We _could_ just jack up the first number, but that'd be a bit odd given
that Mason itself is only at 1.1201.

Or we could just use the CVS revision as an integer, not a float.  That is
weirder in some ways, but will just work right forever.
