Why do so many programmers insist on numbering APIs when they version them? Is there really no better way to upgrade an API than adding a number on the end? And why are so many systems named "NG" when they're clearly just upgraded versions?

Maybe 'nng' or '2ng' for the second Next Generation. Saves typing. :D
