I don't see why "8.0-310" implies anything different about the source 
used than "8.0.310", beyond making it clear that it is version 310 of 
the 8.0-based driver. "8.0-311" and "8.0.311" are both obviously 
different versions to the corresponding 310 versions. Maybe "build" is 
bad terminology, but it's the terminology that the JDBC driver has been 
using for some time now.

If you rebuild from the same source with different options. I'd expect 
the package to tack on a package version along the lines of 
postgresql-jdbc3-8.0-310-4, etc.

Do you have a better suggestion for making it clear which source is 
being used? We could call it "postgresql-jdbc-stable-310" -- which is 
really what it is -- but then you have the problem that it's not clear 
which "stable" release you should use for a particular server version.

Personally, I'd rather just use subversion and release with a tree 
revision number -- then it's very obvious exactly what source you built 
from -- but I don't see that happening any time soon :)
