Whoever said anything about truncating? I've just chosen to arbitrarily set the starting point to 2000 -- it is a new epoch. I am pretty sure I'll never make releases in the year 507. If somehow people decide to stick my version tag in a 6-byte field, that is not my problem. Come the year 2100, I'll happily release (very happily I should say, if still around and able) version 100-152.
