Gods forfend!

Not that you were serious, but I actually rank the Ubuntu release naming 
scheme as "experimental failure" (kind of like "Postgres95"), and wish 
Ubuntu would go back to naming the releases after the date, or just use 
numbers like everyone else.  I'm forever trying to remember whether the 
current release is "Dapper Dalmation" or "Stellar Sparrow" or "Woody 
Woodpecker" or "Moose & Squirrel".  And don't get me started on Apple 
and their releases of OSX "Ocelot" and "Caracal".  It's a release naming 
scheme which caters exclusively to insiders.

Seriously, though, the real issue we'll run into with PostgreSQL 10 is 
that there's several Linux distributors (including, I think, Red Hat) 
which are using a package serial scheme which doesn't include a leading 
"0".  So the upcoming version is 80400, not 080400, and will cause them 
to do some rejiggering when we do eventually release version 10.
