We shouldn't release 4.0, we should release 4. And the next one should

be abandoned. For other distributions it might have a meaning (e.g.,
redhat tends to support security only for the final minor number in the
last major series--but our minors are completely arbitrary and have no
such encoded meaning.)

then we will lose credibility

That's ridiculous. We should not cater to anyone foolish enough to think
a version number means anything.
