I think the major version need change when Debian things (like Debconf
in many packages from potato -> woody, for example) and Debian
Installer (woody -> sarge) but not because GNOME 2 or others

I think if we improve the major version always when new versions are
going to Debian, we never will have 3.1, 4.1 or whatever. 

cya! :)
