That may be why you are scared of MythTV, but I think this is much ado
about nothing. Many Open Source projects have zero-point version'ing,
and if it keeps away people that are "afraid" of that, perhaps that's
a good thing, even if MythTV were at 1.3 right now it wouldn't be any
different and those people would most likely be in way over their head
for something like Myth if the version number is their fear.

It seems like the developers are fine with calling it 0.26, or you
know, they'd have changed that.
