Do VMware users complain about 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.0.3, 6.0.4, 6.5,
etc?  The .5 for them is a major update with some new features, but
still a free upgrade while the next .0 costs money.  The half update is
bigger than normal revisions, so a jump in version number seems
perfectly reasonable there.  Of course I don't see anything wrong with
the XrY style currently used either, although maybe some people find it
