I'm reluctant to do this because there isn't necessarily a 1:1 correspondence between the most recent release an the dev branch. See 2.2.4 and 2.2.5 for examples. I actually wish that 0.0.0 were the only tag visible on the dev branch, but I made a procedural mistake merging the 1.0.0 release, so we're stuck with that tag instead. What do you think about adding something like --with-version-override=<rev>, where <rev> is a tag/branch/rev that the configure script uses when generating the major.minor.bugfix portion of VERSION? Unfortunately nrev is ill-posed for such an override, so I still don't think this is a great solution. Suggestions?
