Description of the change

This adds a for generating source tarball releases to enable packaging for Ubuntu.
It also adds some notes about how to do releases to make it easy for weary release managers to DTRT.

Just a comment. I think it would be better to put __version__ into
hydrazine/ and then update it from there. And in setup you
can do:

  import hydrazine

That way you get the version in the python runtime as well, and they
stay in sync. Also note that a fairly common design is to use:

 version_info = (0, 1, 0, 'dev', 0) # 5-tuple version using integers
 __version__ = '.'.join(map(str, version_info))

bzr uses a slightly more complex tuple => string conversion, but the
tuple can be useful for not needing to parse a semi-arbitrary string.

I especially appreciate that you included sample code in your review, that makes it much easier to get my head around. However, this seems like YAGNI to me. I added the because it was the shortest path to a functioning and correct ubuntu package. Exposing a 5-tuple version number to python code is not needed by any of the current code or the packaging. Of course, I'm just driving by here, so maybe exposing rich API versioning is perfectly in line with the goals for hydrazine, but I'd prefer not to include it in this branch, and wait until some code actually needs to check versions and make decisions based on them.

Thanks very much Elliot, I've drafted you in to <> so if you like you can create a PPA there and upload the package. You can also land this yourself.

We should probably put the packaging into a separate branch rather than turning this into a native package.

I think John has a point that it's useful for the binaries to be able to answer 'lp-attach --version', even if you don't expect to do API versioning. But this is certainly a step forward and we could add that later.
