Issue #18 wontfix

Pypi hides stable releases when unstable/dev releases are uploaded

New versions of distribute support the .dev suffix to versions. This is useful to enable some developers to experiment with new unstable releases, while the rest of the world gets the stable version when using easy_install or pip.

It seems, however, that pypi's default behavior hinders this feature - it automatically hides the stable versions when a .dev release is uploaded, thus probably breaking things for most of the people looking for the stable version.
