Why, we could always name the next versions "cygwin-newer",
"cygwin-evenmorenew", "cygwin-newerthannew" and

With a dash?  cygwin-ng?  Like syslog-ng.  I was going to suggest this
too, but I didn't want to copy the naming too bluntly.  I guess we
should use "cygwin-notasnewbutstillnewenough".  I'm still more leaning
towards cygwin-2008.  You shouldn't have suggested the name.  It's all
your fault.
