Don't you think that's ridiculous? I think that's hideous. I don't like 
date-base version numbers, but they're still better than "TB 25".

Marketing-wise, that's an even bigger catastrophe: It's not news to 
update from TB 26 to TB 27. At the moment, we get newsticker articles 
(e.g. on when we make a new release. This is PR, this is free 
advertising. We will lose that.

So, I think this is a loss-loss path.
