I disagree too to change version number.
I don't want to define version again 16.08.x for developping version I will not 
change 16.08.54 for example.
We need when we look at version that kmail 5.3.x is based on kf5 etc as kdepim 
4.11.x was kde4 version.

When I look at version in okteta for example it's 0.20.60, kigo is 0.5.6
=> so nobody use harmonized version and it's seem to be not a problem.

So I want to continue to use existing version as previous.

When I look at in bugs.kde.org version for kmail2 there is not a 16.x version 
or 5.3.x version.
So it's not a problem about version in kmail but a missing version in
