Why are we arguing about this ?

There seem to be only two positions on this subject:

  1)  There is no useful difference between 2.0.1 and 2.0 r1

  2)  It would be better to have 2.0 r? for marketing reasons

both of which are satisfied by the 2.0 r1 solution.

The only point of contention is whether it should be 2.0 r1 or 2.0 r2

I think 2.0 r1, since the current version has an implied r0 IMHO,
and anyway I'm a C programmer at heart, so start at 0 not 1.

Unless someone comes up with a compelling counterargument, I'll be putting
the next CD release in a directory called:
