What's the difference between counting by increments of 1 and counting
in increments of 0.1 other than the latter is kind of weird?

What would the developer branch be with OpenBSD numbering?  0.0.5 ?

I'm not a fan of even/odd numbering for dev/release branches.  It was
something Linux did in the first half of its life and then abandoned.
Probably with good reason.  I'm not sure how "DragonFly 14" is less
"flat" than "DragonFly 3.0" though... (iow, I have no idea what "flat"
means in this context).
