The typical case has been that the candidate has a distinct version
number.  I think 2.3.1 has taught us to be very careful, so we should
keep the distinction between the candidate and the actual release.

My opinion:  What's "candidate" isn't the actual file we post to
python.org, but the bits in CVS that form the implementation and build
process.  The actual packages are a byproduct of that.

I think there should be one.  They've paid off in the past.

I'm planning to post the 2.3.2c1 documentation late Sunday night or
early Monday morning.
