Well... It skipped to 6.0 to match the Mac version, which had incremented
to 5.1a before the release of 6.0, at the same time as WfW 6.0. Except
then the next version of WfW was "97". And there was no Word for Mac 2.0.
Went from 1.05 to 3.0.

I think the lesson here is: Don't ask, don't tell, and don't investigate 
Microsoft software engineering policies.

As I said before, I kind of like the idea of reversing the
order of the major/minor numbers. So the next version of Apache would be
3.1b4, then 0.3.1, then maybe 0.2, then 1.0.2, etc... Much less confusing
than what we have now, eh?
