I'd rather have the dot, e.g. "foo 2.* >= 2.5", just for clarity:

  - It makes the intent clearer (that you want any version in the
    "two dot" release line).

  - It disambiguates the case where the version number might have
    double digits (e.g, '0.1' vs. '0.10').

This depends on how the * is interpreted.  setuptools already treats
dots as optional in many cases and this would be one more.  I also
prefer the last syntax I suggested without the "*". So, the example
would become:

   "foo 2, >=2.5"

That seems like an empty set to me.

Not to me. :) "foo ==2, >=2.5" would be a specification for the empty set.

Another feature I'm not sure is already in setuptools:

  - I *don't* want dev releases to replace production ones
    implicitly:  no package should be able to install a non-released
    version without explicit callout.  If this isn't already the
    default behavior, then I'd like syntax for spelling it.

What do you mean by a "dev" release?

Any release tagged as "alpha", "beta", "rc", "pre", or with an SVN revision.

I'm fairly sure that this isn't supported. It seems like a reasonable thing to request.
