What other software has the very first digit go up and the feature  
set go down?  I'm surprised to hear you have this expectation, and  
I'm curious how wide-spread it is.

One example out of thousands: PHP went from 4.4.* to 5.0.* and no one  
thought "0 is smaller than 4, this must be an older feature set --  
where can I find 5.4.*?"
