No, it's still BCD encoded.  So it'll go from 0x09 to 0x10 when we move
from 3.9 to 3.10.  It just shouldn't be 0-padded.

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
