Heh - reminds me of Land Rover: They had a "Series II" Land Rover back in the late 60's (classic Land Rover, like in the movie "Born Free" and other African Adventure films ;^), then about 4 years ago they released the Series II Discovery, and the Land Rover loyalists got their knickers in a knot over that... ("They ALREADY had a Series II")
