Now see, if we had just changed the name of the project then we could
have reset our version number to 1.0 without any problem. :)  Now all
options seem flawed:  If we call it 2.1, it seems strange to me that
2.x would be split with 2.0 being com.ibm and 2.1 being org.apache.
On the other hand calling it 3.0 seems like an odd thing to do when it
has the exact same feature set as 2.0 (and we've never even had a
non-beta release of 2.0).

I think maybe I like Apache UIMA 1.0.  I think the potential for
confusion with IBM UIMA 1.0 is actually not that great, since there
hasn't been an IBM UIMA 1.0 in active use for a couple of years.  I
suppose there may be a marketing downside to rebooting our version
number, but that's about the only real problem I see.
