    Agreed. These days, I use just the last digit, as in kernel 36, in
    casual contexts. It's a number as good as any other. I don't think
    it needs to be changed actively. If the 2.6. prefix is bothering,
    just use the last number and maybe that will become semi-official in
    the future, or maybe not. Doesn't really matter.
