While I undestand that version numbers are arbitrary, it makes me nervous to see an establish product start installing .2s, .3s, .6s, etc as dependencies.

I've yet to have any issues with any packages, but as a n00b, I'm worried about becoming dependant on something then finding out I'm in over my head.

As my manager is fond of saying, "Its not whats wight or wrong, its the preception"... though I rebel against this as much as possible :)
