I would strongly support decoupling Specification version numbers from 
River release version numbers.  We need only look over at Tomcat for an 
implementation of the principle.  Given such a situation Craig's 
suggestion (river goes to release 3.0 when com.sun.jini.* goes to 
org.apache.jini.*) makes good sense, since it clearly signals "Your code 
  may have to change."
