if it goes by
then it's preety much what I ment.
I do think we should seperate between specs and fd.o platform release
like having specs version 1.0 would be fd.o compatible even if you wrote
your own hal or dbus, and beside that have release of fd.o platform
which would be compatible with fd.o specs.
So we'll have something like fd.o platform version 0.8 which is fd.o
compatible version 1.0 or something like that.
