I agree with you, SciPy-0.2.0.tar.gz looks better, also people who will 
package scipy will be happier.

Hmm, we could start the following convention: when the minor version 
number is odd, then this corresponds to CVS version of scipy. If it is 
even, then to tar-ball version of scipy.
So, scipy_version.py should contain:

if micro % 2:
    scipy_version = '%(major)d.%(minor)d.%(micro)d_%(release_level)s'\
                '_%(cvs_minor)d.%(cvs_serial)d' % (locals ())
    scipy_version = '%(major)d.%(minor)d.%(micro)d' % (locals ())
