I need to come up with a document numbering convention for the manuals in
our software library.  This numbering convention would:

*       Be unique for each manual

*       Differentiate between manuals in different product releases

*       Allow customers to order a manual by a number, instead of by "long
title" for "software release 3.x.x".


I was thinking about some kind of letter & number combination, and would
like to have an (infinite) bank of numbers that I can assign as needed.  (Of
course, we have many manuals per software release.)


Do you have any ideas or suggestions?  What do you do at your company?
