Feature Request: release version description

It would be helpful if I could have a version description against release version ident.
At the moment, my project versions are of the form "1.2.3" (major, minor, build) - which, on their own are a bit cryptic. Also, the version string is limited to 20 characters.

If there was an associated description, it would make it easier for users to assign the case to the appropriate version.
Anyone agree?

It couldn't hurt!

Do you ever have bugs that aren't associated with a shipping version? (E.g. they were only on a private developers build, etc)

Yes, but I think we may be talking at cross purposes.
I'm saying that the drop down list which displays the version to be optionally assigned against the case should have 2 columns:
1 column with the version ident, the second with a desc. of what that version is e.g.

v2.3.7 - New reports and XML integration

That's easier to understand than "v2.3.7" on its own.
