I also don't have an issue with numbering (someone decided to start a
2.0.1 for the "apache 2.0 release" before I showed up), but I have a

Perhaps we continue making betas and alphas until we finally get a gold.
As soon as we get a gold, there are no more betas or alphas released

if we get a tag we don't like, we don't release it at all (this is
my interpretation of 1.3 currently).

Then, a certain undermined amount of time after we release our first
major.minor release (in this case, 2.0.x), we branch to the development
tree and start the cycle over.
