More strict version numbering

Hi friends,

A while ago I was asked by someone about how we bump version numbers (or not)
in the curl project and I had to confess that it is a little random when we
change the Y in x.y.z or when we just bump the Z.

I would like us to switch to a more strict model where we _always_ bump Y when
there's new stuff/functionality added and we only bump Z when there's nothing
but bugfixes done.

This would start immediately and thus have the effect that the next release
will be 7.22.0. A side-effect of this will be a much faster growing Y number,
but I don't think there's any real downsides with that.
