The only reason we had bpl13a was because of a critical non-compiling
problem. (Due to GCC not warning about (a ? b : c) = foo; construct.)

Otherwise, it's just sequential numbering, nothing more.  The idea is to
not take a year for the future releases though. :)

bpl15 will have autoeq and alias saving barring other occurances.  Jeremy
is on vacation out of the country so don't hold your breath on a release
very soon. :)
