I somehow had wrongly remembered that for example plone.recipe.plone 
(the recipe used to install Plone 3.0 or 3.1, before the eggification in 
Plone 3.2) had a release 3.1.5-1, but that was just named 
(apparently 3.1.5 was a brown bag release).  I can imagine that several 
tools do not like dashes in the version number. is fine too.
