Perhaps Ben should have followed the usual practice of commercial, closed-
source software developers and started counting his version numbers at 
one instead of zero, miss a few releases, use randomly large increments 
occasionally, and ended up with a current version number of 2.7.1 for the 
exact same level of functionality.

Or he could have called it "Enum XP" (for "eXtra Programming" perhaps) or 
"Enum 2007". The next minor release could be "Enum 2008", and the next 
major update could be called "Enum Professional Capowie!!!".
