I personally would /NOT/ like to see an overlapping version number.  Even
if the symbolic release is a 4.6.1 or something to that effect, it would be
much easier for the community to understand.  Remember people outside of
this mailing list really only care about the Flex SDK, not really who
creates it (although, they always should!).
