Precisely. And it was *not* designed for CVS/SVN/whatever RCS snapshots.
AFAIK, it was designed for Release Candidates, which are well-known for
exhibiting this problem:
1.0 < 1.0rc1

Sorry, not at all. Besides what Martin explained, using 2.1 in your
version number without knowing for sure that 2.1 is going to be the next
release is ugly, even if it were harmless (which is not the case).
Better use something you do know: if this SVN snapshot is based on 2.0,
then use 2.0.
