I think this is a good idea. I was thinking something along the lines of
making the 0.60, 0.70, etc the "stable" releases and 0.61-0.69, 0.71-0.79
the "development" ones. This way maybe we will converge faster to 1.0 :-)

I'd vote for making 0.60 a "stable" release with .rhosts patch, then
starting with this control flag change as .61

Will do it, but I doubt the new libpam will be an official upgrade for RH
5.0 (b/c control flag logic change is too much of a step for a
supposed-bug-fix-only release)
