This sounds like a plan, but it's going to bork our rsyncing hard.

Eliott, Dale, Jan - do you guys have any sort of plan of attack here?
What would be the best way to do this that wouldn't force everything
to rsync like 5gigs all at once?

Correct. As a proof-of-concept, ubuntu version 6.06 was released
(which is date based but they mung it a bit) and later on on 08-2006
they released a bug fix 6.06.1 version.

We're doing the same thing.

I think this date+version thing is confusing people here. Don't think
of it as the date of release - think of it as a version number that
just happens to be the date of release.
