What Stefan probably meant here was: You *shouldn't* require minor
versions in setup.py. That was the consensus reached the last time we
fought about version requirements in setup.py.

In this case the requirement is correct, though. As zope.container
3.8.3 (as well as 3.8.2) introduced API incompatible changes. The
above policy of only requiring features releases would have worked if
both 3.8.2 and 3.8.3 would have been proper new feature releases.
Since they weren't the requirement is OK as is.

To make every policy happy, some new 3.9 release of zope.container and
some re-releasing of a no-API-changes 3.8.4 release would be required
- quite tedious and not worth it IMHO ;-)
