Version numbers --> letters

Hello there,

one of our customers asked us to set up a small Alfresco site
to collaborate with other architects. There's nothing special about
it, except for one thing: they don't want document versions to be
numbered as you would expect, but to have alphabetical versions.

Instead of a version "2.0" it ought to read "B". As weird as it seems,
but they neither have more than 26 versions nor minor versions.

I'm posting this in "share development" because I'm tempted to look into
building a custom ftl that maps numbers to letters but something else in me
says, I should process this on repo layer if I wanted to do it the Alfresco
way, but I don't know where to start.

Is there even an 'Alfresco Way' to switch to alphabetical numbering? Or did
anyone else do this before?

(Another solution would be to put Alfresco behind a proxy that just regex'es
anyhting that looks like a version number, but I doubt, I would bonus points
in elegance department here.)


Regards,
-daniel
