What about changing the underscore by a point to make the version
number more familiar?
I don't remember why I chose the underscore scheme but I know this
decision is very, very old. Either it was back in the CVS days or early
when migrating from CVS to SVN (this was in late 2005 or early 2006,
IIRC). Either I was afraid using points could cause problems or I read
somewhere (maybe SF docs) better to use underscores or I was just drunk.
Since now, after the GIT merge all references would need to be adjusted
at all or they simply die, I guess we can also change the names.

Is this branch still present somewhere? I can't find it in SVN.
If I remember this was the branch where I tried to build the editor
menu dynamically using GtkActions but I never completed it and finally
dropped it. So, I'd say there is no need to migrate it if it even still
exists somewhere.
