Last time this came up, it was suggested by someone (may have even been me,
I don't remember) that two dashes might be used.
so, 1.2.3--pre < 1.2.3
This seems to me to be the most visually clean suggestion, and tools that
parse package names, but don't compare versions, would not need any
modification whatsoever.  I would also vote for reusing the colon, if it
came to that.
