The first I heard of the next version after 4.7 being called 5.0 was when 
Dries marked it as such at the freeze.  That was 18 days ago.  He may have 
discussed it with others before that, but it wasn't a big to-do on the list 
like 4.7 was.  Until this month it's been "yeah, that next version".  

I'm all for a cute code name scheme, but I said my piece on that back in 
March. :-)

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
