I know we have discussed this on the mailing list, but did we 
ever write up the policy concerning version number 
incrementation?  I know we have the Birnbaum Doctrine on 
backwards compatibility, but this doesn't say anything about when 
we consider this to be 2.0.0 instead of 1.10.0

If we have written that up, can someone point me to it? If we 
haven't, should we do so?
