I fully support all of Tims arguments..
I'd like to keep it too and especially the point of refering .. I
hardly heard the release number but more the release name..
We still have some hackfests that did not get a name..
And for the future I'd suggest to name the release after a hackfest
after the town where it has been - and if we are running out of names
inbetween take a famous kartographer (until we run out of them) ..
And for the suggestion with the picture of drunken guys in brighton ..
I think there are some .... :D
