I'm circling back around to this with the recent publication of ftp://ftp.redhat.com/redhat/linux/enterprise/7Server/en/RHSCL/SRPMS/python33-1.1-13.el7.src.rpm and friends.

Just looking to ensure everyone who cares about python3 on RHEL7 saw these.  Hope this information is useful.

This has precedent.

The main reason I chose this when doing the mediawiki packages was to avoid parsing problems due to the fact that people like to do ls -1 and then awk/cut out per the first - or . as the package name. I won't say that their approach is good but it was the most common one I ran into when looking at doing mediawiki117 or mediawiki1.17
(the other solution was an rpm aware ls like program.. just what everyone needs to add to ls .deb/.rpm/xxx parsing :).)

When I create new compat packages, I like to put dots in the version so
this works for me as well.

I dislike dashes in that position as it makes it hard to read.

I agree. It makes it very hard to see if I am looking at
