That doesn't answer the OP's question.  I find the numbering a bit 
limiting.  What happens if a module has version 10.  We should change N 
to read D-M-S where D is the Drupal version, M is the module version 
and S is the sequence number of changes with the dash (-) character 
being the delimiter of versions and sequence.  So mymod-7.x-2.1 upgrade 
would be mymod_update_7-2-1().
