I thought the whole thing about Fedora was to generate a new numbering 
scheme that didn't necessarily relate to the enterprise version, and to 
free RedHat from having to officially support a "community" product?  The 
version numbering was supposed to stabilize once Fedora developed to the 
point where it could stand on its own.  Then again, I never thought Redhat 
had any real scheme to its numbering system, but just semi-randomly 
incremented the version number to go along with the other distro's 
semi-random version jumping - so what do I know? :)
