Well, it doesn't really matter to me personally, but am I correct that 
the changes from Woody to Sarge have been at least as big as they were 
from Potato to Woody (where the version number was bumped from 2.2 -> 
3.0)? If yes, and with that in mind, it could probably be justified 
that Sarge ships as 4.0, I guess.
