+1 on PEP overload

+1 on getting the versioning number scheme nailed down.  The reference  
implementation looks pretty good from a quick review and the tests,  
while not insanely exhaustive, seem to cover everything that would  
come up in practice.  If anyone disagrees with that last assessment,  
how about providing a test case?

I'm not sure anymore what "bottom out the latter two first" means, but  
getting 386 out of the way would certainly make everything else easier.
