Please do *not* resort to awkward constructions just to avoid one
mention of the current version number.  If we did decide to call the
next version 9.0, the search-and-replace effort involved is not going
to be measurably affected by any one usage.  There are plenty already.

(I did the work when we decided to call 7.5 8.0, so I know whereof
I speak.)
