Yeah - this version number is one I alluded to earlier when we
discussed publishing on pypi.
The 4.1.0-snapshot releases are things that will never be part of
4.1.x at this point. So someone 'upgrading' at this point would
actually be a downgrade.

That said - we have a 'pay me now or pay me later' situation - so I'd
personally purge all of the -SNAPSHOT releases and only publish real
releases there. If folks want cloudmonkey to move faster we can have
independent releases (that someone will have to RM)
