I think we learned a bit from that, and although the pythonX.Y package
frenzy might look similar, a close look at the python policy will
reveal that it is pretty well thought out. 

Many people contributed to it and helped nut out the boundary cases.
There are still some things to be resolved, but these are acknowleged
in the policy itself and are slowly getting resolved.
