I don't see the problem here.
Say you have a current 3.2.1 stable release.
Then you start working for the next major release 4.
After 4.0 has been released, you want to add a new feature to the old
stable branch, so you release 3.3.0.
That's something completely different than renaming 3.12.x to 3.1 when
it becomes stable.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
