I think the recommendation from the PyPI maintainers is to not use
.postN suffixes since they are intended to indicate non-code

We could look at a mode for PBR which just adds a fourth unqualified
integer component that increments per patchset from the last known
tag (though that's technically not SemVer any longer)? Or maybe we
could have a PBR mode that just increments the third integer
component of the version for every commit without needing a new tag?
Or we could just push a corresponding tag for each merged commit
(though that essentially brings us back to the "tag arbitrarily"
