that raises a question concerning python 2.8.

What would you say: Is 2.8 starting like any new python version,
first version 2.8.0b1 and whatnot?

Or: Does stackless 2.8 simply mirror the 2.7 numbering scheme,
because 2.8 is just a clone of the respective 2.7 versions, with some
back-ported features from 3.X?

IOW. would I try to produce a 2.8.5 final right now? And a 2.8.6 later 
the version is still bloody, stackless-wise?

And how about micro-numbers, are they sufficient to maintain the
version of the added functionality? Or do we still need an extra version
for stackless appended?
