Are release numbers really needed?  Why not do away with them altogether?

you mean, just stick with code names?

That wouldn't exactly work, Debian's apt/dpkg basicly relies on

apache2-2.0.40 is older than apache2-2.0.50?

I was obviously referring to the numbers assigned to releases of the operating system, not to releases of individual packages.
