>People seem enamored with version numbers, so we may decide to choose a few
key items and call them 2.1, or 2.2, or whatever. There seems to be some
controversy on that.

We need some way of referring to each version. There can't be any
controversy on that score. For each combination of features there
ought to be (at least one) distinct FPI.

The difficulty of coming up with designators for arbitrary mix-and-match
combinations of features led to many expressions of support for
using a 2.1, 2.2, ... numbering scheme at the Danvers meeting.
