the second you do this you're gonna get bugs filed saying that you  
didn't sort the versions the way the user intended... how do you sort  
'a1' vs 'b5' vs 'rc1' vs 'z7'? it is all a mess as far as I'm concerned.

For ruby2c, I released 1.0.0 beta 1-5 which I versioned as to It seemed to work fine for me so far... I intentionally  
didn't do any alphas or rc's etc. but I wanted to be clear that it  
wasn't a clean 1.0.0 release.
