it's trivial in both cases. either way, it doesn't seem right to try
and optimize a process based on limitations of a language.

Still, I never liked decimal pkgrels. It's the "release" number, or
number of times ArchLinux has released or rebuilt the package. It
doesn't make sense anymore when you say you released a package 0.3

What was the rationale behind using decimal pkgrels? Because I really
have no idea where it started.
