Mostly because I don't want to ever have breaking changes, so then
you're "not supposed" to upgdate the big version number. I haven't found
that "semantic versioning" has been working very well for the
release-style of txtorcon.

Other, less important reasons: Twisted does this; it's easier to tell
"how new" a release is; and big version numbers are cool (just kidding).
