Hmm... I see, that is what I have worried about.

What about another numbering scheme using "." between the minor
version and the version character as follows?

   2.63, 2.63.a, 2.63.b, ...

This scheme is very similar to the upstream version numbering, and
should never cause the upgrade issue even if a version suffix is
