Yeah good point.  I'm fine with 4.0.  It smells like Progress!  ;)

Dave also pointed out offline that maybe a 3.99 might be easier
on some package managers; for Fedora it's no problem, I can just
do some sort of 

4.0-0.1.alpha1
4.0-0.2.alpha2
4.0-0.3.alpha3
4.0-0.4.rc1
...
4.0-1

type progression.  But if people like 3.99 *shrug* let's not paint
this bike shed too many times.
