that's pretty much a guarantee that the epoch will never change.

the linux kernel's versioning scheme is an expression of a two-level
generational development model. you may have noticed that this was
dropped years ago - the major version is fixed at 2.6. and you never had
such a model in the first place, and you'll never have. so why would you
introduce such a scheme?

yes, one can also prefer a versioning scheme which converges towards the
value of pi. this isn't necessarily sane or even useful, though.
