I thought we stick to 1.7.0 until we create the first actual release in
which case we bump the version to 1.7.1.  After that we bump every time
again, as in earlier releases.

Btw., when 1.7 is adopted, we will have to make release-2 an independent
directory again, right?  Otherwise we will still pull in new 1.5 packages
which will have inferior features.
