[NTG-pdftex] Version numbering

One point discussed at EuroTeX2005 was that the current
versioning scheme is too confusing (when do we increase which
part) and also that a real _number_ is be preferred.

In the future I want to switch to a scheme much like
OpenBSD/OpenSSH:
- version numbers are like 1.30.0
                           A BB C
- C is only > 0 for bug fixing releases
- A.BB is increased with every new release by 0.1
- with 2.00 we switch to A.B.C, i.e. 2.0.0 (we can't do this now
  as it would confuse some people because 1.3.0 is "smaller" than
  1.21a)

Comments?

Best regards
    Martin
