I'm not sure how zooko does this for Tahoe, but with Twisted (with which 
we don't do "betas" but we do do "pre-releases") if we were to start 
getting ready for 2.0.0, then we would create a release branch and 
change the version in that release branch to 2.0.0pre1.  This, of 
course, complicates the matter. :)  I don't think anyone has considered 
how our pre-release version numbers sort compared to the rest of our 
version numbers.  After 2.0.0 final is released, we merge the release 
branch back into trunk, changing the trunk version to 2.0.0-r54321.
