Of course I do not think my feelings on this issue should be the
overwhelming factor in the decision, but it somehow feels wrong to me to
abandon the 3.7 numbering at this late date.  It seems "neater" to
continue from 3.7a to 3.7b and wind up with a 3.7 final.  It seems the
time to decide on a new major version number is when starting a new
alpha phase.  Just a thought for you to consider.
