I don't think that's a good idea.  I've also got changes in
mind that require a libc version bump, but they aren't ready
now.  I was saving them for 6.0.  Other folks may also have
similar changes in mind.  Do we really want to have yet another
version bump?

For 6.0, can we start off libc at libc.so.YYYYMMDD and move it
back to libc.so.6 for the first release?  That way we can bump
it whenever we want to avoid the "bumpy" rides for -current
