How, exactly? Because the procedure for person doing a release would
be a few steps longer? Or because people would wonder why each other
version is missing when looking at some version history or ftp server
directory list?

Well, for Win32 distributions of GIMP stuff, where such files are
handled manually, and/or people have "out-of-band" knowledge that
2.2.8 wasn't released yet at 2005-05-23, that presumably is clear

But if one considers various Unix/Linux package management software,
do they understand that for some packages "2.2.8-cvs-20050523" is
earlier than "2.2.8", but on the other hand, for some other package,
"1.2.3-cvs-20050523" would be later than "1.2.3" ?
