The last round (last summer) was not in favor of having post/dev
markers in the version scheme
(these are required by some developers), so PEP 345 and PEP 386 where
sleeping a bit.

But I have added a note in PEP 386 saying that following this scheme
was not mandatory
(as PEP 345 mentions), and these markers don't hurt people that want
lighter schemes, so..

So I've sent a new mail to RFC PEP 345 + PEP 386, and I am cc'ing
Paul, who was IIRC,
not in favor of the PEP as it stands now.
