Or, we should just bump to the next number immediately after a release
(i.e., go to 0.16.2 now).

Oh, but wait: we want to be able to insert a new minor release, but
not be *required* to do so. For example, 0.17 is the next scheduled
release, but we'd release a 0.16.2 if something special came up.

So what should we bump the version number to after 0.16.1 is released?

Oh. Maybe I should read the whole email before I reply :-).

Stumped,
