Thanks for that.
I guess from that the 1.5.2 version number should be:
$VERSION = 1.05_02
And 1.6 would be
$VERSION = 1.06
But will this cause a problem wrt 1.4? 1.4 has:
$VERSION = 1.4;
Is 1.4 lower than 1.06? Should we keep to a single digit version, so
1.5_02 and 1.6? Does this really not work with CPAN? Should we call them
version fifty and version sixty? 1.50_02, 1.60?
