I think "yes", in that it should be reporting itself as 5.8.1 with 1
registered patch (MAINT #####)

5.8.1-to-be reported itself as 5.8.0 with a maint patch for most of the
period between 5.8.0 and 5.8.1. IIRC Jarkko only advanced it to 5.8.1
(with a maint patch) shortly before the release candidates.

Then again, if we are going to release 5.8.2 soon (for the hashing issues)
then we'll be onto release candidates in the next few days anyway. :-)
