Yeah, sorry.  David mentioned this when we were talking about what to do
about the libkse version number.  If 7.0 is going to see the light of
day before 2009 I think we need to go with things as they are.  Changing
it now is effectively doing one huge bump which would cause fallout with
the packages people have built now, people waste time not only
implementing the bump but dealing with the fallout on their machines,

Setting libkse's number to 3 caters to people who had been running
current (that's what was being installed before the repocopy) and leaves
it in exactly the same state as libthr with respect to how painful it
will be to align things to what you guys wanted for 8.0.
