I rely on file revision numbers when manipulating non release tagged
versions of a particular file. I hope your proposed change does not mean I
will have to tag every interim file commit between tagged releases.

I understand not relying on the version numbers for external usage, such as
the version of a released application, and I have no objection to you
proposed change affecting that.
