One thing to keep in mind is that I did not realize there was any
urgency to make the decision before beta1, because Tom had previous
made reference to renumbering this version to 10.0 *over the summer*
depending on how awesome we then thought parallel query was.  I
assumed that he would not have made this comment if he had an
objection to renumbering the release after beta1.  Surely he didn't
think we were going to do beta1 in the fall.  It was only after beta1
had been released that anyone said post-beta1 was too late.  Had that
been brought up earlier, the discussion might have gone differently,

Also, it is not the case that because Tom applies the tag, he also
gets veto power over the version numbering scheme.  That's not how
decision-making in this community works.
