I agree with changing version numbers, but I don't think we should only do
that, as the Linux kernel did. I think, in Catalyst's case, a new major
version number is a great opportunity to break back-compat with things that
cause problems (make the code base hard to understand, and almost nobody uses
them anyway). Things like M::, V:: and C:: namespaces, etc.
