1 There have been a few requests for negative indices in versionator,
2 where -1 would mean "the last component". This conflicts with the range
3 syntax, however, so the meaning of things like -2 would be inconsistent
4 between functions.
6 However... Getting the last index seems to be something that's needed
7 often enough to warrant a proper solution. The attached implements
8 get_version_component_count and get_last_version_component_index.
9 Thoughts?
