This behavior will not be affected.

Although, I havn't looked at gcc, ld and dllwrap version schemes yet.

If they are compatible with RationalVersion these functions will use it.

If not, I will probably keep something similar to LooseVersion, but
dedicated to this usage.
So maybe renamed accordingly so they are specific to gcc/ld/dllwrap schemes
