Precisely.

1.5.2 RC3 will have in Bio::Root::Version :

$VERSION = 1.52_03;
$VERSION = eval $VERSION; # $VERSION is 1.5203

1.5.2 final release would have:

$VERSION = 1.52_10;
$VERSION = eval $VERSION; # $VERSION is 1.5210

1.6.0 RC1 would have:

$VERSION = 1.60_01;
$VERSION = eval $VERSION; # $VERSION is 1.6001

1.6.0 final release would have:

$VERSION = 1.6010;


Nice thing about putting RCs up on CPAN is that I suppose we'd see the 
test results from cpantesters. The more test results the better :)
