Build fails to detect Arduino 1.0.1 on Ubuntu 12.04 #46

Hey there.

I noticed that environment.py and build.py fail to detect the exact version of Arduino 1.0.1 on Ubuntu 12.04. This is an issue since some libs (in my case NXShield) relies on the ARDUINO define to determine the correct version of function calls, as they have changed signatures. The signature for twi_writeTo in Wire has changed from

uint8_t twi_writeTo(uint8_t, uint8_t*, uint8_t, uint8_t)


uint8_t twi_writeTo(uint8_t, uint8_t*, uint8_t, uint8_t, uint8_t)

The version string for 1.0.1 in Ubuntu 12.04 is 1.0.1~ubuntu12.04.1, but as far as I can tell from ino's parsing code, it only matches on the first two digits, separated by a period. That is, major and minor, but no "build" number.


Edit: I may have been overly hasty in assuming this change came between 1.0.1 and 1.0 or whether this should reasonably have affected developers who correctly use the public API - I note that the function is not part of the Wire library's reference on the Arduino site.
Regardless, if Ino is intended to be a CLI replacement for the IDE (and in that regard, I love Ino to pieces), it should take this scenario into account.
I'm trying to work up a non-destructive patch that will allow arbitrary version designations, although only the three first will be named - major, minor (as now) and build.
