we already have 2 versions that people get confused and want support on..

1.x and 2.x  (in fact, you could say 1.0.x, 1.1.x, 2.0.x and 2.1.x ! :-) )

however, i would be happy to have 2.1.8 and 2.2.0 for the short term - because
2.1.x train is one that everyone is familiar with and works in the 2.1.x way
where-as - as you say, 2.2.x will have new features, methods etc - it would
make sense , then to say 2.1.8 for the small upgraders and 2.2.x for those wanting
the new features/methods etc.   ..and can we say goodbye to all 1.x 'support' ? :-)
