Can the installer be modified to accept a version string?  The version
usually has periods in it, making it a string and not a number.  I can
also see cases where we'd want -alpha, -beta, -rc as part of the
version.  So I don't like the installer limitation ;)  But I assume
you've looked at the issue and it's not feasible to get around it, so
I/we will just have to live with it.

What I don't understand is why we can't leave the base defaults in
build.xml as they are and just modify them in (a
private non-CVS file obviously) when I cut a release?  Why must I update
build.xml each time?
