That's my sentiment.  If we are planning in advance to do patch  
releases on another release, then we should stop calling them

Right, it clearly makes no sense.  If we think we are at the point  
where we want to put a stake in the sand and patch releases off  
another release, let's man-up and call it 1.0, then 1.0.1 and 1.0.2,  
then 1.1.0 and 1.1.1.  And that is totally cool with me.
