To put it another way, there may well be need to have both Cog and
Stack VMs installed alongside each other, even on x86. It seems
superfluous, but why make that scenario difficult? I say the previous
suggestion makes the most sense:


If we're planning to maintain these three variations going forward, we
shouldn't use version numbers to differentiate between them. Someday
we'll be releasing version 6.0 of the interpreter, and it makes no
sense to have that binary be called squeak4.
