We had this discussion before, and the consensus (I believe) was that
no, we cannot get rid of the suffix, or we'll have trouble with support
(since version "0.9" could refer to any of several different tarballs).
We should have changed the tarball when we went from 0.9rc2 to 0.9.

(Alternatively, we could adopt a discipline such that 0.9.1 is the
milestone 9 release, and releases don't know what quality they're
supposed to be. But the 0.9.0 tarball should absolutely not have
anything in it saying that it's the "milestone 9 release" in that case.
Anything you put inside a tarball which looks like version information
will be used as such in questions and bug reports.)
