I don't even know why I chose to do it that way... It started with 1.11 
- somehow I didn't feel that the one small change (a security fix) 
warranted an additional dot. And since it'd been done that way with 
1.11, it was only consistent to do the same with 1.21. I don't think 
there'll ever be more than 9 revisions for any given minor version, so 
no problem there. :)
