I don't really think that this helps. (Well, it *does* help us if we're
targetting a 4.0.4 release at some point!)
Much more important is getting the messaging for this right. This is at this
point actively being discussed on the marketing list, and the general
direction probably looks like:
- 4.0 is not 4.x (i.e. features of KDE4 might not be ready for 4.0 but will
make it in later)
- 4.0 is the beginning of the KDE4 experience for the user
I'd drop the 4.0.0 thing, it'll probably only cause extra confusion. Getting
the expectation right is a bit more complex than adding a .0, this is
something that the Marketing Team should deal with.
