I *hate* marketing dweebs changing things like that!  What could
possibly be the matter with just calling it "Version 3"?

*I* had thought that UNIX-98 was some attempt by SCO or whomever to

Sorry for the confusion!

(I guess the only thing that's changed names more often than the
standard itself has been the domain name they use!  ;-)
