If there are more stable releases in a week, you could put a release counter
after a dash, say : 2.08.30.40-[2...X]

If stable continues to be used and leaps over to next year, put another .yy.ww
section : 2.08.30.09.02

OK I know that's long, but easy to expand if needed, just be sure to separate
date pieces with dots and counters with dashes. Or...

maybe use them the other way round - the current scheme uses counters separated
by dots, so maybe the new could do ss.yy-ww-tt[[-yy]-ww][.X]] ? Like
2.08-30-40.2 ? 2.08-30-09-02.2 ? But this seems odd, even to me ;)
