I am not particular to any of the first 2 [the third might not fit well,
because the minor version is 2 hex digits in __NetBSD_Version__].
The first has the advantage that it makes it clear that this is not a release
because the scheme is different, and the second has the advantage that it is
not different from the release scheme :-)
I think I prefer the second.
