means we still need to have, somehow, 11.3 < $nextversion. I'm unsure if
it's really a hard limitation, though: we could do something like
Solaris/SunOS where we have an internal scheme for technical purposes
and an external one (Solaris 10 == SunOS 5.10). It makes things a bit
complex, though, so there has to be a really good reason to do so ;-)

That's actually not correct, Solaris is not the same as or a sucessor
to SunOS, Solaris is rather built on and includes SunOS 5 (which is
largely derived from SVR4 rather than the BSD-derived SunOS 4)
and more of a superset of it.

Apart from that, seperating a marketing version from an internal
version will just cause confusion and needless effort.
