I agree with this.  I think renaming 4.2.2 to 4.3.3 will result in
lots of unnecessary confusion.

Likewise.  As was suggested on IRC, we could append a letter to the
version number (say 4.2.2G) or something distinctive, but don't skip
version numbers in such an odd way.

I would very much agree with this, if it's possible. 4.2.2_GPLv3, perhaps?


I very much agree with this.

Also (and I am too young to know) how (and when and if) was the GPLv1 -> GPLv2 transition handled? Or is GCC older than GPLv1 (I am just asking, maybe past history could help).
