I am all for it.  Basically I think a named versions resonate with 
people in a way numbers do not.   It also provides a method to move the 
mainstream away from the  truly disjointed numeric versioning system.  
Although,  from a support perspective Avocet release 1 and Avocet 
release2  ie 38.1 and 38.2 will need to be obvious.  People are used to 
Service pack updates,  so they will not baulk at have release number I 
do not think.  Really the only place the true version numbering should 
appear is in the Help| about information which includes Geko versions
