There is a long-running thread on pgsql-hackers on whether 9.6 should
instead be called 10.0.  Initially, opinions were mixed, but consensus
seems now to have emerged that 10.0 is a good choice, with the major
hesitation being that we've already released 9.6beta1, and therefore
we might not want to change at this point.  That doesn't seem like an
insuperable barrier to me, but I think it's now time for the
discussion on this topic to move here, because:

1. Some people who have strong opinions may not have followed the
discussion on pgsql-advocacy, and

2. If we're going to rebrand this as 10.0, the work will have to get done here.

The major arguments advanced in favor of 10.0 are:

- There are a lot of exciting features in this release.

- Even if you aren't super-excited by the features in this release,
PostgreSQL 9.6/10.0 is a world away from 10.0, and therefore it makes
sense to bump the version based on the amount of accumulated change
between then and now.

Thoughts?  Is it crazy to go from 9.6beta1 to 10.0beta2?  What would
actually be involved in making the change?
