So you think that 0.09 < 0.1 ? But you also think that 0.10 > 0.1 ?
And you talk about a 0.10 upstream release, which I assume you know
will come after a 0.9 upstream release.
So in your universe
0.09 < 0.1 < 0.9 < 0.10
? Whatever that is, it's not arithmetic :-).

There is no need for that; you can have ugly version numbers for a bit
until 0.10 does come out. In the meantime
