I really try hard to ignore you but as you are wasting Derek's time I can't this time alas.

Why this would not be enough? it's absolutely, totally unrealistic for any module to have 10 branches for a given Drupal version.

It's equally unrealistic for any branch to have more than a hundred database updates.

So how [digit for Drupalcorenumber][digit for branchnumber][two digits for sequence] is not enough?

I would suspect that as usual you do not have a clue just you are writing that we should do this, change that and so forth. I begged you in the past to stop but you don't. Ah well. Life can't be perfect.
