Note that There are some legacy cases:
pre-1.0 beta releases were tagged beta-YYYYMMDD, which incorrectly compares as greater than 1.0.0, even with version-aware sort orders.
pre 20.1-beta, alphas and betas were named
beta.YYYYMMDD, which sorted correctly.
Code that must handle old CockroachDB versions, like our registration cluster, must special-case versions that begin with beta-, but should not expect to special-case any future versions.
