I see no point in changing what we are doing *without* getting the benefit
of following the semantic versioning approach.
Right now things like 1.1.0 with a major API change and 1.1.1 with a major
feature update of TLSv1.3 are confusing to those who haven't been along for
the journey.

Our current handling of version numbering surprises developers and requires
careful explanation.
