Why not just name the prerelease tarballs something irrelevant, than?
Version numbers are cheap, but they're not *that* cheap; it's a little
confusing for 1.1.3 to be succeeded by 1.1.7. If we have a way to avoid
spending them on prerelease testing (and it seems like it should be
really, really simple to avoid it), then we should avoid it.
