Supposedly setuptools uses packaging.version:

   $ python3
   Python 3.8.3 (default, May 14 2020, 11:03:12)
   [GCC 9.3.0] on linux
   Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
   >>> import packaging.version
   >>> rc1 = packaging.version.parse('0.30~rc1')
   >>> rc1
   >>> rc2 = packaging.version.parse('0.30~rc2')
   >>> maj = packaging.version.parse('0.30')
   >>> maj
   >>> rc1 < rc2 < maj

So I think this is ok?  Just for completeness:

   >>> rc1b = packaging.version.parse('0.30-rc1')
   >>> rc1b
   >>> rc1b < maj

Apparently PEP440 has the full details of how Python wants to see
version numbers work, but it's too many years ago that I read that
thing ;).  This seems good enough to me.
