    I took a brief glance at your changes. You'll probably want to teach it
    that 2.6.39++ == 3.0 so that people can seamlessly move back and forth
    between the two ranges. This wasn't something that made sense across the
    2.4/2.6 transition.

    Oh, wait, maybe I've spotted the code for this.

    Thinking ahead just a bit, it'd be nice if we could just declare in
    advance that 3.9++ == 4.0. If we're going to bump the major number at
    arbitrary points, that's the most obvious one. It's approximately 3
    years out at the current rate which seems like a good pace. Then tools
    like ketchup and other tools that handle these version numbers could
    just do all this once.


    Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
