Well, a 3.6.0~alpha1 would appear as 3.6.0alpha1 in about with a underlined ;-)
Unless you escape it somewhere. (bdtd, but it's so minor that I ignored it
whenever I uploaded something like that)

I am OK with it as long it's only the internal number and nothing else changed.
The above is what we do for public versions anyway (except in the last case
where we'd use 3.6.0 and leave the 3.6.0.x as a internal thing. Noone in the public
knows that anyway - the press/website etc. also just talk about 3.6.0)
