Sorry, Steve - not everyone agrees with that apparently. And the reason for
said disagreement has been discussed in lengths times and again.

There are three major development branches in existence and if re-numbering
takes place than all three should be considered equally to prevent creating
even more mess with the versions. What you are proposing will essentially lead to

    0.22  -> 0.22
    0.20+ -> 1.0
    0.23  -> 2.0

And this will be so bad that frequent Firefox major version updates (which
works great, btw) will look like a nice thing to have.
