FWIW, I'm in agreement with the above. I'm proficient and experienced in 
Python, but by default, I would have /assumed/ tox does what `pip 
install` does.  That is, no '--pre' by default.

I do know that dev releases exist and I was aware --pre, I just wouldn't 
have thought it would be used by default.

My $0.02.
