Now, I know some programs have huge version number jumps (Slackware 4 to
7.0, or Word for Windows 2 to 6.0) but having the first release be 6.0
sp1 seems a bit extreme. I guess the best way to skip the bugginess of
version 1 software is to skip it altogether (whereas free software tends
to call the first release 0.x. Sodipodi (a vector-based drawing app),
for example, has no expectations of *ever* reaching version 1.0, but
it's a lot nicer than some 2.0 software I've seen).
