No, it shouldn't. Consider, eg, treating 2.2.9 and 2.2.10 as "2, 0.2,
0.9" and "2, 0.2, 0.10".

If you're really so ignorant that you don't understand the way it
currently works and why it works that way, and so lazy that you can't
even be bothered looking for the obvious problems that suggestion would
cause that make it not even worth considering in passing, you shouldn't
be posting to this list. The above idiocy isn't even worth the time it
takes to hit "d".
