Remember that the Qt community is the only one allowed to release official 
versions of Qt and set the version number.

So Digia is operating under special conditions right now, due to the lack of 
Qt4 in Gerrit. Once it stabilises, I'd rather not see Digia release a 
commercial version with a version number that the official Qt doesn't have yet.

That might imply they need a second version number. E.g.:

	Qt Commercial 4.7.5 update 1

which indicates it's the Qt Commercial vendor branch, based on the official Qt 
4.7.5, but it's an update to something previously released.
