Yeah, dunno how I did that. :/ Fixed.

OK, so here's the logic. First 1 marks it as a "post" release from 2.0.
The middle is the snapshot revision, and the last digit is the build
number. In these fixes, I'll increment the last digit.

Well, the only thing its likely to break is the documentation. Those are
symlinks to mfstool. (/usr/bin/backup == /usr/bin/mfstool backup)

And even then, the docs seem to refer to /usr/bin/mfstool backup
instead. Renamed in the spec, should be fixed.

Changes commited to CVS, take two? :)
