Where numbers and versioning DOES matter is how it affects
distributors and vendors of httpd and the entire module eco-system.
What matters is quality (here I do agree with you). A versioning scheme
can help to establish certain rules of what to do and more importantly
what to *not* do on a given version pattern or branch. And with the
current rate of successful releases, apparently the current rules either
were not enforced well enough or otherwise were not good enough and thus
need to be changed. A new versioning scheme then could help to establish
new, hopefully better rules.
Just my 2¢.
