I guess it depends. If there has been no "stable" release with a

with development of that package.
IMO revision numbers are more useful as they are easier to line up
with upstream and if reporting a bug a revision number is probably
more useful to the upstream developer, especially if more than one
commit was made on one day.
JFTR the software I am packaging has had semi-stable releases but they
are few and far between and all bugfixing goes on in SVN.
For something that has had stable releases and you are packaging
snapshots between releases, I would do something 1.1.15~20070112svn for
the upstream version.
So for a snapshot of revision 91 between stable version 2.0 and future
version 2.1, would something like:
