[development] drupal 5.1 or 5.0.1

I think Robert's asking about the "releasemonitor" module.  Robert created
the "version" module which did some simple things related to CVS versions.
I contacted him when I was developing "releasemonitor".  "releasemonitor"
was a first attempt by find programmatically discover which modules were
ready for D5 and which modules had D47 updates.  

I've only been coding for Drupal for less than a year, so it's bound to not
"know" the "Drupal" way of doing things.  

I hope to update it in the coming months, fix it for php4, and have a
broader discussion about what and how it should do things.  Dries asked if
I'd help contribute this for D6, which I said yes to.

project.module has to support a ton of different styles of version  
numbers, since it's used by:

a) old versions of core (4.7.6)
b) new versions of core (5.1)
c) old versions of contrib (4.6.0)
d) new versions of contrib for old versions of core (4.7.x-1.3)
e) new versions of contrib for new versions of core (5.x-1.2)

just be thankful it works at all. ;)
