"no-brainer" as in obvious, or "no-brainer" as in this discussion has
turned my brain to mush which is now dribbling out of my ears?

(I've sat through several V4 group meetings on version numerology.)

This should be the smallest possible increment.  In this case
3.16.1.1-DEV with the current 4 part numbers.


or, and I hesitate to suggest anything, include the -DEV flag as the
least significant bit in EPICS_VERSION_INT.

where $isdev is true if $snapshot is not an empty string.
