I hereby propose the following, which goes one step further.  Starting
from the first release where Unicode is fully supported (see -policy
for a nice not-too-flamewarish-yet thread), Debian releases will be
numbered in cuneiform numerals.  Hah.  I've never seen *any*
distribution (or any other software, by the way) use that system.
