http://ru.wikibooks.org/wiki/LOR-FAQ-Debian seems to be saying Etch is 3.2 
Also http://www.computerbase.de/lexikon/Debian seems to be saying the same.
(Got these from a google search of "etch 3.2 debian" (page 8 onwards)).

I suppose if etch does result in been 4.0 the media is going to say
that the project didn't keep to it's word?
