Generally that is used if you need to fix something in a lower branch that 
otherwise has the same version as a higher branch without bumping the higher 
branch(es). For example:

foo-5-1.fc11
foo-5-1.fc10

And we need to fix something F-10 specific:

foo-5-1.fc11
foo-5-1.fc10.1

still follows F-11 > F-10 (upgrade path). However, I'm not sure why this is 
being added to a rawhide (or F-11) package.
