One imperfection raised here is for point releases. We have been
inconsistent in the past with what we do for development builds of
point releases - sometimes we have reset to 1, in other cases we have
incremented over the development build number of the previous cycle.

For 12.1.1 would you reset to build 1 (causing a
potential-but-harmless name conflict), or would you continue on from
the last build number of 12.1.0?
