We should strive not to invent ever new identifiers.  Since the
reported versions are file-bound, we could use




for the CVS version based reports.  For the release numbers, it would
probably be ok just to give the release number, nothing else.
preview-latex releases will never reach, or at least never exceed 1.x,
I think.

That is a good idea.

Anyway, while you are at it:

    Your bug report will be posted to the AUCTeX mailing list.")))

seems to be a rather blatant lie.
