As FreeMarker RC-s are public releases that are advertised on the
front page and so on, if because of some internal iteration we skip
numbers, that's somewhat confusing for the end-user. Not a big deal,
but still. Also note that I only did this inside the poddling mailing
list, not here.

Both source releases contain that and .project and .classpath too. It
can be convenient for developers. (Like they do this at JBoss for
plugin projects too.) But yes, it would be cleaner if we export the
relevant Eclipse settings to xml-s, etc.
