OK. Sure, VERSIONS="curr:126.96.36.199-2 test:2.0.0-b8-1" also works, and it has the
advantage of not baking in the current 3-version prev/curr/test setup quite so
much. OTOH setting PREV, CURR and TEST feels a little more natural to me with
the current 3-version setup.
Either way would be fine with me, as long as I have a way of automatically
setting the versions in the cygport file, instead of having to manually edit
setup.hint after the build.
