So, do you have a serious suggestion instead of 0.10, 0.11 that will be less confusing?

The 0.x and 0.x.y versions are tied to the Mozilla code trunk/branch setup and the time-based milestones - therefore, there's going to be a bunch more releases before the magic "1.0". If the Firebird version numbers don't stay in sync (you've said, for example, that 0.7 could have been 0.6.2), that might make things easier for people just looking at releases, but for those in the forums who are following nightlies and branches and stuff, I think it would make it even worse.
