Make this a 1.12, because HAMMER is only in an alpha state. Then when HAMMER 
is production ready release, change the numbering scheme altogether. The 
roman numerals for example are nice, and would attract attention. DragonFly 
XIII sure looks good, and the june release DragonFly XIV. Maybe dump the 
odd-even numbering altogether.

Whatever else is decided, as one saddled with a roman numeral surname 
suffix these past 63 years, I'm dead-set against those!

Give a thought to my numerous Irish friends, who casually drop 
'aitches', and what happens to 'William B Hacker III'.


- and fast forward with 'X' = [unknown | mystery], and find

XIII == 'DragonFlyBSD's [unknown | mysterious] turd release'

There's gotta be a better way?
