Sadly, I know of no package manager which knows how to sort atomic element names.  So we packagers of Frama-C on Fedora simply use "1." followed by the atomic number (= number of protons).  Thus, Beryllium becomes "1.4", and so on.  Then the package manager can figure out stuff like "is there a newer version available in the repository" easily.
