I would prefer a mix of date-related an unrelated versioning 
like taking the year and then counting the versions in that year 
up like 2009.1 is the first one in 2009. Of course there is still 
the possibility that versioning won't fit and we'll have to 
change the version from 2009.4 to 2010.1 but this can only 
happen once a year so I think this would be a quite good
