I agree with this. Major versions should be pretty major. And while I've
been excessively major with my major versions in the past, I would
expect that bumping the major version number of a product has some very
serious changes to it that will fundamentally change how it or a part of
it works and/or how you use it.
However, each maintainer must determine his or her own policies in
regards to these issues.
