However, Doug and I just uncovered a concern on IRC: having PyPI be
ahead of master for more than very short periods seems like a poor

When we tag a final release on a branch, without master being higher
than that final release, folk running things installed from master,
will now be 'upgradable' to whats on PyPI, even though thats older
from a human perspective.

So, I think we do need some aggressive means to bump master up past
the versions reserved for a stable branch, at the stable branches
