Not sure I follow what you mean by "by this method".

IMO we should bump the major version to 2.0 whenever we made changes
that we feel warrant it.  Things I would consider warranting such a

  - Restructuring of the evaluation system and macros so that we can
    add compilation (and by compilation I mean anything like VM, JIT,
