That's a great idea! Let's start codenaming our releases colors instead
of numbers! I mean, it'll cut down on confusion a lot. We'll never run
out of colors for one, so we still have pretty much unlimited release
flexibility. Also, the majority of colors don't have apostrophes in
them, so we won't have issues with that either!
