Ping. Personally I think we should use n2.4-post, as it is more
consistent with RELEASE file, and doesn't have the ambiguity that
comes with "dev" (i.e. does 2.5-dev < 2.5 ? or > 2.5?).

Libav is recently considering to use Semantic Versioning (semver.org),
which demands "2.5-dev". To fully comply with semver, we also need to
change first release of a branch to "2.4.0" instead of "2.4," which I
am not sure if that's what everybody wants.
