This has been brought up several times (including at dconf 2013), but nothing
has happened with it yet, so I figured that I should create an enhancement
request for it.

Right now, all dmd beta releases have the same name. This makes it very
difficult to determine where any particular beta zip file fits into the string
of betas or even which release of the compiler the beta is for.

They should all have unique names - something like dmd.2.063beta1.zip,
dmd.2.063beta2.zip, dmd.2.064beta1.zip. The exact naming scheme isn't
necessarily all that important, but it should have the name of the release that
it's a beta for as well as a number indicating which beta it is in the string
of betas for that release. Ideally, dmd itself would report that version as
well so that it's clear which version of dmd you have installed.

If we have a naming scheme looking like dmd.<whatever> it will be automatically
compatible with DVM :)
