Why don't we just call it boost 2006.NET. (I am not serious by the way)

If the only benefit we get from changing is a re-branding then I don't
see it as worth the effort.

There may be little effort from the boost point of view, but users
will be affected, as Oliver said. Probably much more than we expect.

I can think of several scripts I have that use the boost version
number, moving up a version for me is as simple as changing a variable
 Changing the structuring of the version number would mean hacking the
script so that for versions < 34 produce 1.34 and >= 34 produce 34.0.
Why? Who benefits?

As for the psychological side, I see a version like 34.0 as "Wow, it
took them 33 versions before they got it right?", whereas 1.34 as "its
in active development".
