+1 for not having codenames at all... very difficult to
understand which is more 'proper'. It'd also be more practical
to use versioning for the ISOs which is not dependent on anything
else at all; for example the current method uses dates which
means if the ISO is not made within the month, the version has
to be changed.

If we use kernel versions, it is much better; however there's
still the small (though unlikely) chance that a particular kernel
cannot be released with an ISO due to some showstopper bug. So
the older method of versioning (0.8, 0.9 ...) was better in that
sense, since it was not tied to any specific component (spatial,
temporal or package).
