pje comes to the rescue again ;)

0.7alpha1.dev-r1111 would be a continous build (or something someone
built themselves from a certain revision).

0.7alpha1.dev-r1111-checkpoint would still be the same revision, but
would clearly indicate that this is the special checkpoint build.

The Python egg tools say that

0.7alpha1.dev-r1111 < 0.7alpha1.dev-r1111-checkpoint

which is also ok.
