I still do not prefer changing the way versioning works. We have never
done this before.

This was considered, but has a number of issues. The most important one
being that a _lot_ of people will not upgrade from 3.x to 4.x,
especially in stable releases. For example, for RHEL8/CentOS8, it
would likely not work and be postponed to RHEL9/CentOS9. The practical
result is that we then are maintaining 2 trees and doing a lot of
backporting and people won't be using our latest release.

point of view, it would accomplish the opposite of what we want to
