and lets keep it this way. All the rest of the world has felt this
incredible pressure to keep changing version numbers. Until theres a
_bloody_ good reason to start using 2, lets keep to version numbers that
have meaning. we're at 1.5. logically, the next version, which should
not really be dictated by a calendar but by a significant enough change in
the system to warrant it, willbe 1.6. 1.7 would logically follow 1.6 and
so on and so forth, 1.11, 1.15, or whatever, down the line. 
if suddently some really importantly big change takes place, maybe then
one could go to 2's.
