That is an excellent suggestion.  The extra .# will help us track which
pre-release is used.  Following this thought through, we should also tag
the tree for each pre-release package.  The problem is that we don't
have the official release name yet, but currently the thought is that it
will be X11R6.8.  Once the name is finalized, I will follow up with the
other release wranglers to determine what the pre-release tags will be
(probably something like XORG-PRE-R6_8-# where # is the pre-release
package number).  I will report back with the results.
