In reality this will mean two things:

1. We will get more publicity for 5.0 than we would have got for 4.10.
Even sites that theoretically know better (e.g. LWN) will fall for a
fancy version number.

2. A number of people will decide to stay with 4.9 until 5.x has
"stabilised". So we had better make 4.9 good.

and I think that is a good point.

And as for Martin's "what all the cool kids are doing" -- the radical
view that seems to be taking over is that version 5 + 1 would be 6.
