I thought I answered this one, but I don't see it in the archives nor my
sent-mail. Must have been an off-list conversation (hmmm, I remember
Paul giving me a bad time, he wanted version 5.0 ;-).

The real reason is indirectly related to matching up with FC4. The first
test builds were based off of FC4 test 2. The version number for FC4
test 2 was "3.92". I made the mistake of numbering the K12LTSP
equivalent "4.3.92". That pretty much blew using "4.3.0" for the final
release number. It was easier to bump the number up than to use
something ugly like increasing the Epoch value.

Besides, as you note, "4.4.0" looks like it matches up with "FC4".
