    The current versioning scheme seems adequate to me, but I think 2.0 was
    released prematurely. More thorough testing was needed in the end of
    the 1.3 series, er, excuse me, the 1.99/pre2.0 series.

    Is there some automated way to make sure all different possible
    configurations (or at least a frequently-used subset of those) will
    compile?
    If Linus would only test the code to make sure it compiles in different
    configurations, that would catch many of the stupid little "bugs" we
    always see.
