[Python-Dev] PEP 386 and dev repository versions workflow

http://guide.python-distribute.org/quickstart.html proposes suffixing
version of a module in repository with 'dev' in a way that after
release of '1.0' version, the repository version is changed to
'2.0dev'. This makes sense, but it is not compatible with PEP 386,
which suggests using 2.0.devN, where N is a repository revision
number. I'd expand PEP 386 to include 2.0dev use case.
