No, it's described below, but yes - the above is my ideal.

It isn't contradictory, n.n.0 would be an initial drop, n.n.{odd} would be
the dev builds between qualified n.n.{even} releases.

Compatibility rules above would hold, and I don't even see a reason to
enforce httpd's 1.1 -> dev.  I don't see this library changing so much on
the main branch.  If I'm wrong, maybe we should consider this too, that
1.{odd}.* are all work-in-progress and don't follow the compat rules except
as applies to the prior 1.{even}.* releases.
