[suggest] perl-DateTime numbering issue with "0.4305" release

RPM version tracking is confused by numbers like '0.4305', and the
"mock" utility for CentOS 4 and CentOS 5 doesn't properly detect
perl-DateTime-0.4305 them as being more recent than 0.42. This is
particularly confusing since Dave Rolsky, being a CPAN sort of guy,
keeps changing his numbering scheme back and forth from "0.42" to
"0.4305" and other four digit numbers, then back to 2 digits. This can
seriously confuse careless version handling.

With that in mind, can we publish Dave's bundles from now on with the
version number *split* with a dot? So it comes out as a less confusing
