Relying on a particular version down
to the qualifier is just plain silly. To me relying on the first 3 segments
should be precise enough.

[orbit-dev] Bundle versions
I recall at one point we decided that we would use a qualifier as part
our bundle version numbers in Orbit (although I can't seem to find that
information right now) so we could make changes to bundles and use Update
manager to manage the different versions.
But I was thinking about it today and I remembered that we used to have
products built on Eclipse which commonly specified an exact version match
in their requirements because it was important for them because they knew
that they were compatible with a specific version of a bundle.
(org.apache.xerces comes to mind as an example)
If people specify an exact version and we start using qualifiers as part
our version numbers in Orbit, this could be a problem.
