Hm, and three digits would conflict with day of year naming, and four digits
with year naming, ... Ugh. What a morass.
So in a hypothetical future where we need more than 52 release identifiers,
the 53rd would be "zza", the 79th "zzza"? I don't know how generally the
rule is described in the relevant documents -- if it doesn't say what to do
beyond "zz", we could well end up in the same kind of trouble again...
