Concerning the version number, I thought the intention of
PEP 404 was simply to say that the PSF would not be releasing
anything called Python 2.8, not to forbid anyone *else*
from doing so.

Or am I wrong about that?

If I'm right, there's nothing stopping Christian from
releasing Stackless Python 2.8 with whatever improvements
he wants. If it includes other improvements beyond the
change of compiler, it may even deserve the higher
version number.
