Subject RE: Releasing 1.3.7

Didn't the "mass virtual hosting" stuff add some extra fields to standard
structures ?

I thought most people felt a major number should be bumped for those
scenarios.

	I think a release is a good idea...

	I just question why we're inventing another new numbering scheme...

	why not do 1.4b1 and then release 1.4.0 in a month.  I'm serious.
EAPI
	is almost a good enough reason on its own... plus the other features
we've
	snuck in...

	after all they're all just numbers ;)
