of course. and that's the place where i wanted to attach the name 1.3
omega. although...perhaps omega is a little wrong, since we're
already using alpha and beta for another purpose. maybe i could call
it 1.4 aleph? or 1.4 epsilon?
it's that "common" point after 1.3[A-Z] ended, but before 1.4[A-Z]
started, and from where 1.4[A-Z] and 1.4 (the release) sprang. that's
the concept i've been searching for this whole time.
