When these packages can be installed independently of a GHC or Hugs 
release, it will make sense to bump the version number more regularly. 
We're not far away from that.

My plan was to bump the versions of all the packages as soon as they're 
independently installable, and from then on I think we should bump minor 
version numbers whenever an API change is introduced.
