You're advocating encoding metadata in a unique identifier.

Don't do that.

Version numbers should have no inherent meaning. They are simply identifiers of a particular source code set. If you want to communicate ideas about maturity and stability, make it obvious and put it elsewhere.

Comment: Schedule I, anyone? (Score 1) 273 273

Okay, so let me get this straight:

it's a chemical,
that's meant to be ingested, (and thus a drug)
and that has no medical use,
and (presumably, like alcohol) is likely to be abused,
and that (presumably) can cause damage or death if abused.

By US law at present, this should be Schedule I and banned immediately.

We were so poor that we thought new clothes meant someone had died.
