As others suggested, the simplest is probably to remove 1.0.0 from PyPI 
and releases.o.o, and then wait until the API is stable to push a 2.0.0 tag.

That way we don't break anything (the tag stays, we still increment 
releases, we do not rewrite history, we do not use weird post1 bits) but 
just limit the diffusion of the confusing 1.0.0 artifact.

I'm not sure a feature branch is really needed ?
