Such a version should *never* have been "released" to PyPI (any egg /
source dist with an SVN revision number in its filename is *not*
suitable for sharing with the wider world).  Pushing such distributions
out to PyPI, rather than sharing them in a more restricted / private
location, induces pain on the wrong parties (those who innocently rely
on PiPI, rather than those perpetrating the risky behavior).
