Oops, sorry if my post was confusing. I think your suggestion is a  
great idea. I didn't really know whether to bump the SVN version  
numbers before or after the previous releases, but your suggestion  
makes sense. In this post I was just thinking aloud -- and I suppose  
hoping for some discussion on the version numbers of releases ;)  
[Mental note: confusing posts are good for generating discussion]

After reading Ravi and Darren's posts I agree that the nice 2:1 ratio  
should die. This happened by accident anyway, and doesn't really make  
sense while NumPy is in feature freeze but SciPy isn't. So under this  
scheme the next versions would be 0.5.0, then 0.5.0.x (svn), then 0.5.1.
