Theirs ends up like 1,2,24,48,92, due to there being one version for the 
entire repository, so individual files jump around a lot.

That's the kind of thing that *might* happen to cvsnt, but might not. 
I've still not finalised anything yet (it's a ways off before the RCS 
files go.. got to get the directories working first, and they just have 
a single repository revision+tag, as they don't have to have any 
backward compatibility).

My current preferred scheme is TAG+revision, so you can refer to files 
as FOO.1, FOO.2, FOO.3, or in relative terms (relative to the latest 
revision), FOO.-1, FOO.-2, FOO.-3.

Whatever happens has to be convertible to something that looks a bit 
like an RCS revision number anyway so that frontends like cvsgraph can 
make sense of it..  the actual numbers though may look a bit random though.
