Version numbering for release DECISION!

My vote goes on having the pre-release branch (like RELENG_X) named
something completely else than -STABLE. Name it -BETA instead, that will
scare away the people who wants to have STABLE in their uname because
they think thats more stable than a release. They are so wrong.
A new naming scheme should rather show that a release with patchlevels
is way more stable than any pre-release branch.
I have suggested this before, and IIRC Matt somehow agreed on this.
