It's my fault -- I named the the 0.90pre3 package '0.90rc3', because
we have support for "rc" version numbers, but not "pre" (or not to my
knowledge, at the time). So to distinguish, when rc's came along, I
just added "10" to the bona fide "rc"'s. There really is no rc13.
There may be an rc4 before the final, but hopefully, that'll be it.
