I too had pondered on that.

Here's the broad situation:

 - my intent is to aggressively backport on changes to tip, not on
releases of cPython - that way we have a) some backpressure *against*
spurious API breaks in cPython and b) early feedback if we do
something daft :) and c) as little disincentive for fixing things in
the right place as possible.

 - we're going to have a problem with versions before cPython does
each major release. E.g. right now we'd be what?

 -  our current version numbers are strictly lower than cPython's, so
we can adopt cPython's versions easily if we want, modulo the concern
above (and assuming we're happy with 4-element versions).
