I still don't like that much, and just thought of another reason why:
it would foreclose doing two major releases per year.  We have debated
that sort of schedule in the past.  While I don't see any reason to
think we'd try to do it in the near future, it would be sad if we
foreclosed the possibility by a poor choice of versioning scheme.
