I thought this horse had already been beaten to death -- apparently not?

It was stated somewhere in these threads that the problem with the
Firefox scheme is that they release new versions every six weeks, so
naturally there is enormous version number inflation.  In our case we
would still release new versions once a year, so by 2026 (ten years from
now) we would be releasing Postgres 19 while Firefox will be in version 133.
