The gimp-style versioning is intentional. I think that 0.99.* indicates
"slogging towards 1.0!!" whereas 0.9 seems like a decent release in its own
right. I'll vote (i.e. use my divine mandate to dictate) that we keep it
that way :)

The trouble is that webutils and webconfig are not logically "owned" by web.
webutils could grow into a separate distribution; webconfig might just as
logically be config.web. I don't see a compelling reason for organizing them
in a package yet. (Something like twisted.reality may bear packagizing,
since twisted.library *is* logically "owned" by reality).
Also, anything called "util" is basically crying out for refactoring.
Perhaps web and reality should both be packages and both have a "library"
subpackage? I dunno. Suggestions are welcome.

Well, there are 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.0.3 releases in between, etc, that were not
