Go ahead. I have my doubts about it, but they're no big deal. I think
Matthew has a point that twiddling the version causes negative emotions
for some, and I'm one of them. It seems like a superficial and somewhat
deceptive thing. Remember when Microsoft Word jumped from 2.0 to 6.0 to
compete with WordPerfect? Remember when Netscape skipped 5? That what
I associate with version number twiddling.
But we've done it before. What the hey.
