I'm not arguing against or for any versioning method, but I want to point out
that no pycurl release has really had *full* support of what libcurl can do
and offers through its native API. Thus, having "full support" as a marker to
when you change version number is probably a bit hard.

But I also realize that the versioning scheme was set a long time ago and it
is probably hard to switch away from it completely.

Short-term, I think the most important thing is that there is a release made.
Period. It doesn't matter very much exactly what the new version is called...
