Another penny dropped when it comes to version specs.
Should 2.5 mean 2.5.0 only, or 2.5.*. Well... why would you ever need to specify 2.5.0 only. That's a nonsense specification.
"My project requires Python 2.5.0, but doesn't work with 2.5.1". Huh!? Well, then fix it, goofball. :)
2.5 can mean 2.5.* without any problems. And 3 should mean 3.*.*.
I am not sure why you are proposing a new syntax, if you agree that 2.5 should mean 2.5.*
The syntax we have specified in the PEP already works with your examples, and is way less complex that your proposals I think.
