Yup.  This is sort of the way that linux does it.  I am not going to
keep the snapshots at the same revision as the net release.  *I* would
find the confusing.

Also, I don't know what people mean when they say 1.1.y-YYYYMMDD.  We
don't have enough room in the utsname field for this.  However, I have
modified uname() so that the snapshot date is reported as the release
date and an 'S' is added to the revision.

I think that Corinna was just implying that we already have everything
that has been requested, though.
