I agreed 100%. Anyway, the version numbering was not simple to 
understand. 2.0 -> 2.1 was from the number of changes a major. and by 
changing to PAS in 2.5 it was also kind of major (breaking existing 
installations). In past it was very difficult to explain to customers and 
even to new developers. Now with "3.x only change minor and upgrades are 
simple" statement all are very happy!

The current plan to name it 4.0 is in my opinion very good, even if the 
changes are not that major than first planned.
