[Distutils] Version comparison - round 2

I have gathered all the documentation for the versioning lib in a
single document,


It explains how the existing tools work and how "verlib", that we
built during Pycon, works.

It still needs to be completed by some people that were present, but a
new feedback round
is more than welcome.

The goal here is to provide a version comparison standard to be
included in Distutils.

We do need such a standard to be able to include the
"install_requires" metadata as planned
(that will be a change in PEP 345)  to be able to provide a standard
for version comparisons.
