Requires a particular python version.
Why not drop ranges as well as operators and simply use commas? The above would be rewritten as:
Requires-Python: 2.5, 2.6, 2.7
This would prevent the ambiguity on the inclusive or exclusive nature of the upper bound of the range.
That would mean that commas mean "and" for some entries but "or" for others.
You might argue that if you want to include 8 versions of Python this makes the notation slightly longer, but who tests their package with 8 different versions of Python? (and if you don't test exhaustively, just use the "2.5+" notation)
Wouldn't "2.5+" include "3"? How often would that be used, considering the differences between Python 2.x and Python 3.x?
