I'm thinking why should we so conservative in raising version numbers?  Why 
not relabeling 1.4.0 to 2.0 and mark 1.4.0 as a broken release?  Then, we can 
continue by putting everything except ABI breaking features in 1.4.1.  With 
this, NumPy 2.0 will remain available for people wanting to be more on-the-
bleeding-edge.  Something similar to what has happened with Python 3.0, which 
has not prevented the 2.x series to evolve.

How this sounds?
