I'd like to avoid 4.1 because of the potential for confusion about
whether it's a major release (as it would have been under the old
scheme) or a patch release.

Yes, it has a redundant zero in the middle, but I don't think that's a
terrible thing, and it's very clear what the version number means.
The alternative would be:
4.1.0 <-- Can't tell from the version number what kind of release this is.

Right, not planning to do that.
