Perhaps it would be better to use a letter instead of a number for the 
generation code (major release).  When confronted with a string of 
several numbers, the human mind tends to blank out.  For some reason, 
letter - number - number is easier to remember and say than number - 
number - number .  For definiteness, use US ASCII upper case.  
Hopefully, the generation number will change only infrequently.
