PEP 404 says there will be no Python 2.8. In my view, If you release
something named (Stackless) Python 2.8, that seems to me to be pretty
unfriendly given python-dev's clear intentions. Call it Stackless
Python 2.7 plus for Visual Studio 2010 if you want, but using the
version number 2.8 is bound to confuse at least some newcomers about
the status of the Python 2.x line, and that's what PEP 404 was
intended to avoid.
