I think the reals reason is that they are slowing down the release number cycle so that it can become less or equal to PI. With each successive release, the kernel developers can then claim to have calculated another digit of PI.

Since this joke is already used by TeX (Pi) and METAFONT (e) we should probably invent something new - there are enough interesting constants in the world...

Actually, the kernel version numbers are closest to e, so that would be the one to shoot for, perhaps.
