CPAN requires the version component of a developer tarball
to include a '_' character.  We've been doing this munging 
ever since 2.01, but this will thankfully be the last time.
See the RELEASE document in cvs for details on the process.

The tarball will be released as libapreq2-2.04_03-dev.tar.gz, 
but it's going to be formally called the 2.04-dev release.

I recommend not including release candidate data in the spec file.
Is it possible to just remove the "_03" from the tarball's name 
before building the rpm?
