Hmm, quite a bit of historical stuff there.

You still have to bump the version number immediately before you release.
You can bump it again immediately after you release (e.g. if you're using
Linux-style odd/even version numbering), but you don't have to, because
snapshot source distributions will have version numbers like 2.0.20061008
-- intermediate between 2.0 and 2.1, but with a date for bug tracking.
