The problem I can see with pretty much any approach (whilst Nokia
releases are sprung on us like this), is that any naming scheme is
going to have risk of not matching. Obviously the release version year
& week aren't going to be known ahead of time.

There's even a problem with 4.1-2 (2nd release of 4.1), though. Ahead
of time, we don't know if the next version is in the 4.1 series, or

Is it easy to rename versions? Perhaps it should be "<latest
version>+1", i.e. the next version is known, in Bugzilla, as "4.1.1+1"
until it's released; then it is renamed to the appropriate version
(say 4.1.2). The next iteration would then be "4.1.2+1".
