  I think names should only be used as an adjunct to a version number -
a version number is unique and suffers 0 ambiguity.

  So 12 rawhide is ok .. but rawhide alone is not.

  Silly but obvious example - we had a bug in rawhide - does not tell
you enough - you need to say - we had a bug in rawhide as of (date) or a
bug in rawhide during 12 developemnt .. or some other qualification.

  Whereas a number is unambiguous.
