	When are these published patches generated, and under what 
circumstances?  Does this mean that the third digit would be 
incremented with every single change that is recorded in BitKeeper?

	Whether or not we like the particular revision numbering scheme 
we're currently using, it is reasonably well known.  Before we can 
seriously propose changing it, I think we need to come up with some 
pretty good reasons why we think that change needs to happen.
