Any project that uses a post-release tag and has multiple developers 
or multiple commits required to create that post-release version, 
will need the dev tagging to distinguish installed/development 
versions from each other, even if these intermediate versions are 
never "released" to PyPI.  People working from checkouts will need 
them to keep their install/build tools happily humming along, able to 
tell which intermediate checkout version they're workign with and 
whether they are up-to-date.
