RPM versionning rules have to match versionning rules used by the packaged
projects in real life. Users want to match package versions to the
versions advertised on upstream web sites.

Since what software writers consider sane versionning is only slightly
more predictable than winning loto numbers, rpm internal rules border on
the complex.

In other news the software industry was still US-centric, and americans
still pondering the benefits of going metric.
