Feel free to adopt whatever you think is the "best" practice: I don't understand
what's wrong with 1.1.99 instead the "magic" 1.2b2.

I followed these "lengthy discussions" .. if an agreement was found and was
technically sound why do you think people still arguing about that? And we're
talking years not hours to come up with those peps.

I like a joke from time to time: python -c 'print "1.2.dev1" < "1.2.1"' -> False
Even easier in my unicors populated universe.

I'll simply ignore anything about those peps, for what it matters.
