These will be used in the about dialog.

We do not allow dangerous changes for bugfix releases => the daily
builds should have the quality of release candidates. So, there will be:

We have one alpha, three betas, three release candidates for .0 release,
and two release candidates for bugfix releases.

Another solution would be to omit these daily builds versions in
bugzilla at all. It is motivated by these ideas:
+ 188.8.131.52.beta2+ version is incomplete anyway; there are more
daily builds with this version; reporter should cut&paste
the whole buildid from the about dialog anyway
+ daily builds are used only by active QA testers; they
are more experienced and could handle the missing "+"
versions in bugzilla reasonably
