Would you mind doing it as a unidiff? I'm having trouble understanding/applying it without context. Thanks.
It seems better to have some magic version string for development, that is neither more or less than other versions (or at least it depends on context -- it's the highest version number when using --develop [should that be implemented], and the lowest otherwise). But that's only useful given a --develop option to easy_install.py.
I was actually thinking that such packages should have their Distribution object be of a new 'type', which would have lower precedence than other distribution types unless development mode was in effect (in which case other distribution types would be ignored).
