Yes, time to end that madness. I suggest svn rm'ing setup.cfg once and 
for all. If we decide that we still would like to do continuous 
releases, it's easy to do with

   python setup.py egg_info -rb.dev sdist

Ugh, This smells like Silva. Then again, maybe not too 
surprising that it's coming from you :).

Seriously, I think three digits are enough. And if we can't reach 1.0 
with a couple of 0.9.x releases, I think we're doing something wrong...
