I also don't like the fiddling.
Slackware Version jump from 4 to 7.
Java 1.1 --> 1.2 = 2 --> 1.3 --> 1.4 --> 1.5 = 5
it only causes confusion.

Say we go to 0.90 now, I think we should lay out a roadmap
of what we will aim for in 0.91..0.99..0.1
I couldn't find one with this much detail, maybe I'm just out of the loop,
but I want a list of exactly what is required for 1.0.

We have to ensure that we get to 1.0 after 0.99.
other wise we'll get 0.100, 0.122 and then you are going to want to jump to
0.990 :)
If we are uncertain about 1.0 withing the next 10 months,
we would be better off sticking with to 0.19..

But we've done it before.  What the hey.

well maybe we should learn from this for post 1.0
maybe we should have 1.0.0
where the monthly releases only increment the last number (1.0.0..1.0.9),
and when the project reached some key milestones the major and minor numbers
can jump.
(1.0.x -> 1.1.x -> 1.2.x -> 2.0.x)
