Hi Martin,

BTW: Debian uses "~" in cases like that to ensure correct sorting order:

1.2.3 < 1.2.4~rc1 < 1.2.4

"[...] a tilde sorts before anything, even the end of a part." [1]

I know, but that's mainly solving the problem of correctly sorting versions in a flat namespace.
A problem that we (as upstream, working on branches) do not have.

I rate consistency (having Java and C++ versions look and behave similar) higher than the ability to sort correctly.

Cheers,
~Ralph
