Ah, last minute issues :-) The files were named intentionally, under the 
assumption that there will be 4.1.2 and 4.1.3 releases. In which case I 
find it much preferable to have the *first* version be called 4.1.1 and 
the *second* version 4.1.2 and the *third* version 4.1.3 etc.

Seemed pretty obvious to me :-) But before we start a bikeshed 
discussion around it, I'd be willing to change that if people really 
think it's such a big deal.
