as promised, we spoke about core version numbering schemes and code  
names at drupalcon.  i wrote up a 1-page hand-out summarizing the 2  
big threads we already had on this list and gave it out to folks for  
consideration.  yesterday evening, dries and i finally had a chance  
to sit down and talk through the hand-out, why it's important, and  
what we should do.

briefly: he's opposed to code names, leaning towards the 2-digit  
solution, but wants to gather some more feedback before he makes his  
final decision.

he asked me to put the text from the handout into a forum post, along  
with a table summarizing the pros and cons of the 2 viable  
proposals.  this way, people can clearly see what the options are and  
don't have to reiterate or get fixated on 1 pro or con and lose sight  
of the big picture.

request for comments (RFC):

p.s. please don't reply to this email, just comment in the forum  
post.  that way, people who truly don't care won't get spammed by  
your email, and those who do can read your thoughts online.
