  Additionally, from a Python Distutils perspective, Distutils should 
not be enforcing one distro's policy.  There are RPM-based distro's that 
DO NOT follow fedora's packaging policy.  The software should only be 
concerned with providing for the use of both the 'version' and 'release' 
strings in all distribution targets.  It should not concern itself with 
HOW those fields are formatted.
