This might not mean what you want it to mean to some people.
Its true, a lot of people read too much into a version number. Some people resort to using dates ( yearmonthdatey ).

If you want to label your module as alpha/beta/release, do so unambiguously, in the documentation.

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).
