I have a question
Why we have "block/transaction versions" if we don't use it? There was a good moment to increment version number and later use it in such way: if Miner gets a "strange" block with increased version number -- it is a signal for him to check for new soft. We could have avoided many of lost orphaned blocks
We should have, but "we" didn't think of that in time.

I've been working on a "how to do it better next time" document:

How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?
