Why not?  I realize that version is more important for pre-compiled 
extension modules, but it applies even to a pure python package.

Source code that uses @decoration won't work in python 1.5

Defaulting to the version used to create the package isn't perfect, 
and may sometimes be too conservative -- but as a default, is it
really worse than nothing?
