The ISBN is retiring in 2007! It is being replaced by the "ISBN-13", which is a new name for the Bookland EAN (the 13-character format used to barcode an ISBN). Currently all Bookland EAN's start with "978", but once the plan is into the implementation phase, new products will be assigned "979" prefixes instead.
