numbers are good if used as they need

I already said some time ago than 10.1 is more an "11",
given the new update system.

and I'm not sure this was a good decision, because the
debugging seems very hard :-(

anyway, if SUSE Linux shall be out at regular pace (said 8
month last time), why not a date.

However, the Mandriva system of one major issue by year
seems not so bad, it could be better to have a better bugfix
on the stable branch and keep unstable some months more testing
