I am OK with just using round numbers, too.

The biggest thing for a time-oriented scheme is really what made the
cutoff for long-term distro releases.  With a 10-year support term, we
are often looking at 11 or so years to have made it into a release.
OTOH, if somebody using a 10-year-old distro is forced to use a slightly
older version of Git to match, IMHO that is not the end of the world.

Bumping to 7.35.0 would also let us simplify some curl-compat code,
which is always my real goal. ;)
