Combined with the fact that that great majority of packages don't change very much after they have become stable, I think most package dependencies could be expressed very simply if there was a simple syntax to specify *just* the major version. In the context of setuptools, I think "*" could be used, as has been suggested, but without leading =s. So, to specify foo version 2, I think the following syntax would be very reasonable:

  foo 2*
Why can't this be foo >2 ?

Nevermind, I shot too fast. I realize that "foo 2*" *only* wants foo 2.x and not 3.x... So, in my suggested spelling, I would write it as

  foo 2.>=0

I wouldn't mind shorting that to

  foo 2.*


I'd like to go even farther to: "foo 2".
