[Distutils] Amend PEP 440 with Wider Feedback on Release Candidates

I’ve had a number of people complain that PEP 440 normalizes a release
candidate as 1.0c1 instead of 1.0rc1. Do we want to ammend the PEP to switch
the normalization around so that it normalizes 1.0c1 to 1.0rc1? This probably
matches what people expect better in general? It wouldn't have any effect on
sort order or the like, it would just change which form is preferred.
