I don't see any good reason why this should be so.

What about between v17 and v18 ?
What about between v3 and v4 ?
What is the relevance of all of it anyway.
It's merely psychological and not even very strongly felt by anyone anyway.
To me (and many other people I know), the differences between v19
and v21 are not that significant since I don't use anything else
than latin-1 and my bufffers are 99.9% filled with the same
misc-fixed-semicondensed.  The jump from 19.28 to 19.29 was more
significant to me in some regards.

Again, I don't see any reason why this should be so.
If it's more convenient to name the current trunk 22.0, then I think it
should be done.
