Major versions are about features rather than bugfixes.

What would be Rincewind's version number then? 3.0? With just 4 months
dedicated to its development before the feature freeze, are you trying
to jump on the bandwagon of the lame fast-increasing numbering scheme of
internet browsers?

I don't think that we have measured the impact yet, so that statement
seems self-warranted.
