Thanks for your note. Now when you say it, I think that I can recall
the incident, and my confusion about whether to "downgrade" the
debian package or not :)

Good to remember that. We can together decide about the number, when
we will have a wiki set-up, and other stuff ready. Some voting may be
involved as well :)

So we will have to vote for three things:

1. version number for a release from current SVN

2. version number for a followup release with build process and plain
   bug patches included.

3. version number for a new great sawfish, after adding some of the
   new things. Should be a bigger jump IMO, even if it's just a
   consolidated tab support into sawfish themes provided in the trunk,
   or just a very basic compiz/xgl support.
