Not exactly compelling but...

Notice that as a rule, debian packages with new upstream versions get
released as -1.  Something version 0.x  is implied to be buggy, and
untrusted - which even if the CD images are, we probably don't want to
label them.  I think that calling the second image r2 would be
significantly less confusing; after all, it is the 2nd release.
