I've been using "4.1+" for the next, not yet published update, and I'm
going to keep this. Renaming isn't fun, but it's okay (less than 10

And I wanted to avoid having four levels of numbers - I already see
enough average reporters mixing up 2.2.x and 2.22.x in GNOME Bugzilla so

(4.2008.36-5)". I think it's a good compromise.
