Interesting... can someone clarify what's going on with this? I was under the
impression that under the new versioning scheme some versions would only have
two numbers now, e.g.  3.0. Is this not the case any more and we will always
have a third number? Is this an Arch specific thing or an upstream thing?

(I've just been fixing some software to cope with the case when uname doesn't
return a third number... perhaps that would no longer be necessary?)
