Won't it be a way too much? Given that there is the only source tree, the flat
scheme that existed until now seems more adequate.

Personally I like the OpenBSD's version numbering: every release increments
the minor. After X.9 release the major gets updated, so it beomes X+1.0. This
allows easy mnemonics and avoids such threads on the mailing list.
