Whose bright idea was this?

Apparently I've missed some sort of revolution in the light bulb world. (besides CFLs, that is.)
A box of incandescent bulbs was on my shopping list. But I discovered that instead of 40 watt, 60 watt and the like, the bulbs were now 34 watt, and 57 watts!
When did this happen? And does a 57-watt bulb put out the same amount of light as a 60-watt bulb? Or am I going to have to use a 67-watt bulb? (which seems to negate the whole idea of energy saving)
