Why?  Why shouldn't 1 be the default?  If you don't have an explicit use case for more than
one version, which I would wager many people don't, what is the point of it?


PS Yes, the Google paper has the number 3 in it somewhere: in the web-crawling example.  Since
it was just one example, it doesn't make a very good basis for a system-wide default.
