I'll need some help then on this one, must be my frenglish at work.

What I want to say here is that it is understandable that we are not
finding a consensus
on a version scheme, and that we can bikeshed for ever about it.

Bringing the discussion to Python-dev might lead to another round of discussions
on the best scheme to adopt, but I eventually expect Guido to end it
up with one of these:

1/ We'll pick the "foo" scheme. I accept the pep.
2/ this is not going to work, I reject that pep.

(I want 1/ of course!)

IOW I think that we already have everything needed to have a useful tool.
