	This makes sense to me, but I have a question.  Why
2.2 and not 2.1?  Are we now going to embark on the odd/even
convention of the Linux kernel (odd minor is development,
evem minor is release).  If so, I have to say that I'm all
for it.  I just want to know if that's officially the
road we are about to walk down.

	My vote says do it.
