The installed packages I have with version numbers greater than 10, 
excluding obviously year-based package numbers:
python-twisted (11)
build-essential (11)
preview-latex-style (11)
libportaudio2 (19)
psmisc (22)
wireless-tools (30)
x-ttcidfont-conf (32)
udev (167)
xterm (269)
less (443)

That is 10 projects right there with large version numbers. Of course, 
you have to take into account that a very large amount of open source 
software never even makes it up 1.0...
