Keep in mind though, that many project build nightlys produce version qualifiers 
that starts with 'N' and that this often break the version semantics when 
intermixed with other types of builds.
That's new to me. I thought all project should use X.Y.Z.vBUILD-QUALIFIER. [1]
Thank for this info Thomas.


PDE has this support for the nightlies where the fetchTag is HEAD (instead of the qualifier in the maps), and when using the generic fetchTag the qualifier gets set to N<date>-<time>

Interestingly with the switch to git, we've switched to a convention where the qualifier in the map is the v<UTC timestamp> of the last commit to touch a given bundle/project.  That same practice could be applied to nightlies since it is invariant with the same build input.

In the Eclipse SDK case, that still wouldn't allow easy intermingling of types of builds as the product qualifier *is* changed on every build and in our case would swap between N<date>-<time> and I<date>-<time>
