Really, people are complaining about even numbers now? (Do I detect just a hint of sarcasm here?)
Anyway, I think that the number 4 may have something to do with the fact that multiplayer will probably be for up to 4 characters (I know they've said it may be up to 8, but with pets, minions, and particle effects, I think 4 is a better limit), and they probably wanted to match the number of classes to the max party size.
But you know that once people start making mods, the number of classes will jump much higher anyway. Hopefully we'll end up with a prime number again.
