Yes, technically this is wrong from what dww intended to set up.

However, the decision not to allow modules a Z number in the release 
system (x.y.Z) left us in the annoying position that the major number 
can ramp up *very* quickly...which means *branch maintenance* can ramp 
up *very* quickly.

I wanted Views 2 to actually be 2; had I done this by the rules, Views 2 
would actually be Views 6 or something, and that fails to fit my vision.
