I don't know if it's silly, but I actually don't mind this at all.  Though 
almost our entire user base will be confused by poorly written press 
releases done on some random site. "ZOMG ArchLinux version 1190222877 has 
been released!", "ArchLinux Hard at Work with it's Billionth Release!.  
It'll appear like we've been doing a lot of work between releases as well.
