Well. It definitely should be. Reading the setuptools documentation
again it becomes obvious how the version numbering scheme has to be used
to make that happen:

"Note: the project version number you specify in setup.py should always
be the next version of your software, not the last released version."

So, the trunk's version in setup.py should be "0.1" in this case.

Making a snapshot release would be done using::

    $ python setup.py egg_info -rb.dev sdist 

This results in the egg being labeled: project-0.1.dev-r1234

Now, a develop egg would be version "0.1" which is represented by the
trunk, just not released yet. And any snapshot will have the pre-release
tag "dev" and the post-release tags given by the subversion revision.

IMHO we should take care arranging our setup.py files in this way.
