The build number meaning has become overloaded. I dislike having it
The .au deployment installation method avoids some of this by
providing a user interface for installation of builds. I was not
involved in the design. They unzip a file onto a USB drive, which
contains an OpenFirmware script and the build images.
But the design does mean that file names are a non-issue for deployment.
We already use 0, 1 and 2 to mean XO-1, XO-1.5, and XO-1.75, so adding
another set of letters seems a duplication.
