I've got to defend the new scheme, because I like big version numbers,  
and Twisted is awesome enough that I think it deserves them, like  
Ubuntu (which I admit is the only other project I know of that uses  
the yearly version scheme....well, besides the windows 9x  
series... ;-) ).

But one thing that I think is nice about Ubuntu's scheme is that point  
releases are based on the month of the year.

I wonder if the Twisted approach of mixing the year-style and the  
fractional-version style might be too confusing.
