personally I've always wondered why having a version attached to the 
namespace hasn't taken off more to deal with api breaking releases. if 
we had org.antlr1 org.antlr2 org.antlr3 life would be much easier. Sure 
you wouldn't get auto drop in jar and release, but I'm guessing tooling 
could make up for that in those cases.
