[Distutils] dev versions

So after creating, say, version 0.3.1, I always mark a package as 0.3.2dev.
 But this is annoying, you might never create a version 0.3.2 (e.g., 0.4
might be the next level).
So, it would be better to use something like 0.3.1~dev.  What is considered
best practice for this?  Ideally something that works with both Setuptools
and the upcoming Distribute version spec.
