No one has presented a good reason why it would be more convenient either.

but I can't see any reason why that's true, since it isn't really a `new
numbering scheme'; it's more of a minor tweak.  The only thing people
really depend on about future emacs version numbers is that they
increase, and that they `make sense', and I don't think it's any more
confusing to start using minor-minor release numbers with 21.4.x than it
would be with 22.1.x -- whereas I guarantee that people _will_ wonder
`Whoa, emacs 22 already!  What great feature did they add?!', and go
away disappointed if they hear it's `just a version number adjustment.'
