Nothing technical / serious. Just my personal taste, yours may vary :)
Anything without a '-' marks a real release

Short (or should I say: too short) labels will buy us nothing IMHO. Is
there any reason for as-short-as-possible labels? I just tried to create
a non-breaking, readable naming scheme which reflects the current use of
branches and tags, but I don't have any strong feelings about whether it
should be used or not...
