Title: #254: Replace LooseVersion with pkg_resources.parse_version

martbab commented:
I have a sneaky suspicion that the parse_version couldn't cope correctly with 
some of the downstream versioning schemes like RHEL z-stream releases and such.

That should be OK with API version, but client/server versions can pose a 
problem. There is are some examples in the 
ipatests/test_ipaserver/test_version_comparison.py I made when solving a bug 
that was caused by incorrect version comparison. Can you check if parse_version 
can handle them correctly?
