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:
Why can't this be foo >2 ?
This wouldn't prevent someone from specifying a minimum
version. For example, to combine this with a minimum
requirement of 2.5:
foo 2* >=2.5
This seems really weird to me.
I much prefer: "foo 2, >=2.5"
Would you be able to write
foo 2.4, >=2.4.3
Hmm, ok, then I'm at least not against it. But I still think my
variant is shorter and more self-explanatory.

Not only to him, I guess...
