No, that's also been true between 3.8 and 3.9, and 3.9 and 3.10.
4.1 isn't *that* big of a change from 4.0. Nearly everything that runs
in 4.0 runs in 4.1.
The biggest reason for a major number change is a change in the .sources
file. And why it wasn't done between 3.8 and 3.9 is historical. Let's
not have that happen again. :)
