I think your proposed change makes sense for the A.B.0 case (B != 0), but what
about the A.0.0 case? (i.e. 2.0.0.)

Could we make the case that a four-week 'no-touching rule' might make more
sense before the first release of a new major version? I'd think it might -
because if we really screw something up, we might be at (A+1).0.0. -- justin
