That would be good.

What I don't understand about this thread is why 3.4dev was "newer"
than 3.4.0.  Doesn't PyPi use the same versioning rules as setuptools?

$ python
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Jul 20 2008, 01:20:16) 
[GCC 4.1.2 (Gentoo 4.1.2 p1.1)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
f>>> from pkg_resources import parse_version
>>> parse_version('3.4dev-r73090') < parse_version('3.4.0')

So what exactly was the problem?
