While this move would have its merits, I think we should go ahead and
implement the new scheme right after the 1.13.2 release [1].  That is
because the current code in maint [2] already have some new features
and new warnings implemented, and that is exactly the situation where
a new minor version would be warranted according to the new proposed

 [1] But not before we have reached a consensus on the proposal, of
    course; as Diego pointed out, this is not something to be rushed.

 [2] That would have become 1.13.3 with the old versioning scheme,
     and should become 1.14 with the new one.
