I was supriced that the following code returns True.
parse_version("0.1dev") > parse_version("0.1rc")
A rc release should in my mind be newer then a dev version.

Turbogears has a problem with this regarding SQLObject. TG requires
SQLObject 0.7.1dev-r1860 but can't use SQLObject 0.7.1rc1 which is a
newer release.
