To the user that expects to find a 1.X.Y tag when looking at
boostorg/<Z> corresponding to the Boost 1.X.Y release, the "4.0.0" is
the unofficial, less meaningful, and confusing tag. These are the
majority of the users. What the concern over this issue tells me is
that non-Boost users that care about Boost.Build are being done a
disservice by being forced to use boostorg.org/build repository if the
"official" Boost.Build has to diverge in any way (including release
numbering scheme). i.e. These users are probably best served by
"official" B2 living in <organization>/b2, with boostorg/build just a
fork of that repository.
