Ordinarily I'd agree that naming is a bike shed argument, but
<projectname><integer> strongly suggests that  the package contains
that major version of the project.  Now it will be a long time before
bash gets to 8.0, but it's still a pretty bad name. Though I don't
care enough to write more than 5 sentences about it. I will think it's
dumb every time I see it.

Well off to write a bash script that generates ASCII art snakes and
cats, gonna call it python4 (pronounced python-quatre).
