I like the idea of a monthly version number. As we add examples of new
classes, we can test whether or not to build based on versions. We do that
now, but we have to test on the slow-moving version now. At one time we
changed the version every night.

> I want to do this because it will let me make a release now to preserve
> what is in master. The larger scale changes we planned for 9.0 will happen
> shortly after that. 8.2 will and 9.0 may come out before the end of this

> A topic for future discussion is whether we want to continue the existing,
> fairly haphazard naming scheme or move to something better, perhaps a
> year.month scheme like several other projects have moved to recently.
