Okay, it's in the trunk now as of 0.7a1dev-r50702 and 0.6c1dev-r50703.  It 
even handles date and SVN revision tags correctly, by converting them to a 
single --tag-build string and disabling the other tagging options.  So if 
you just build from an sdist without doing anything special, you get the 
exact same version the sdist was built with, regardless of how the version 
was originally specified.
