On Ponie Versioning
I remember that at some point, Dan Sugalski proposed that Ponie (that codename
wasn't yet chosen) should be version-numbered as 5.10+i (or something), to stress parallelism with the good old perl 5 ; and
Jarkko replied something along the lines of, (quoting from memory),
I always thought that software ought to have complex version numbers, you
know, with real and imaginary parts.
