Well, I guess he will have fun with all the outstanding patches.
I think he has never had so many. :-)

Unfortunetely there won't be any flamewar as far as I'm
concerned since don't care very much either way. :-)

But if anybody is intrested in my opinion anyway here goes:

I'm slightly against changing the versioning scheme before 1.0.
After 1.0 we probably want to have so sort of different versioning
especially since we might release different versions of the DLL:s
independently of each other. However I don't think there is much
use of having that pre 1.0.
