I've gotten confused before between whether GHC "6.6" referred to the
whole branch or the point release between 6.4.2 and 6.6.1. It makes it
hard to distinguish which is being referred to (although, it also makes
it easy to be vague when referring to an upcoming major release, which
might be considered an advantage I suppose). I propose we switch to
that "X.Y.0"-style major release naming as of 6.8.0 (a.k.a. 6.8).
Comments or opinions?
(P.S. GCC's having made this naming change inspired me to suggest this,
but I don't actually know what their reasons were)
