Alright, then, I've set trunk to what we'll call 'pre-1.7', or
v1.6.900 (1.006900); gives us more than enough chances for point
releases (I hope we don't need more than 900). ;>
Other svn distributions main trunk code likewise requires core
1.6.900. If there is overwhelming support we can rename it 1.006009
