pytz version number (2013b) is considered a pre-release by pip 1.4
I'm dealing with issue, where pytz version numbering (2013b at the moment of writing), is causing pip to fail package to install)
So, trying to simply install pytz, is giving this:
pip install pytz
Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement pytz (from versions: 2009r, 2008b, 2009f, 2008c, 2007g, 2011g, 2005m, 2011e, 2007f, 2011k, 2007k, 2006j, 2008h, 2008i, 2011e, 2008a, 2009e, 2006g, 2011j, 2010l, 2005m, 2008i, 2005k, 2008g, 2007c, 2007i, 2009l, 2009r, 2006j, 2011k, 2007d, 2006p, 2009i, 2009u, 2007i, 2009f, 2010g, 2008h, 2009a, 2007g, 2011e, 2006p, 2012b, 2010k, 2005r, 2007f, 2009l, 2009p, 2008c, 2009j, 2008g, 2010g, 2010h, 2011h, 2010k, 2007c, 2007d, 2011d, 2009l, 2011c, 2008a, 2005m, 2007k, 2009n, 2011d, 2010o, 2013b, 2012h, 2010e, 2012c, 2012d, 2012f, 2011n, 2011b, 2011j, 2008c, 2012j, 2007k, 2009f, 2009d, 2010e, 2010b, 2013b, 2011d, 2009p, 2008h, 2005r, 2009i, 2009n, 2009a, 2010k, 2008g, 2006g, 2008b, 2012c, 2009i, 2007g, 2012c, 2010h, 2011n, 2012g, 2007d, 2008a, 2009u, 2012g, 2010o, 2006p, 2010b, 2009u, 2012d, 2011k, 2012f, 2009a, 2007f, 2011h, 2010l, 2009j, 2011g, 2009g, 2009g, 2005r, 2011c, 2012g, 2009g, 2012d, 2009j, 2010o, 2007c, 2010g, 2006g, 2009d, 2010h, 2005k, 2006j, 2010b, 2009n, 2011g, 2011c, 2012b, 2009e, 2009d, 2011j, 2007i, 2012j, 2010l, 2009r, 2012h, 2010e, 2009p, 2008i, 2012f, 2009e, 2012b, 2011h, 2005k, 2008b, 2011n, 2012j, 2013b, 2004b)
No distributions matching the version for pytz

I can of course install with exact version number pip install 'pytz==2013b', which works fine, but usually I have a list o requirements, that are delivered in a text file, and during install, or updating packages, if one of my requrements, requires pytz, I'm in trouble.
I could install it with easy_install, which does not respect prereleases, but that would be a little bit dangerous, and also easy_install is being deprecated in favour of pip.
Please, consider adopting pep386: http://
Also, it might be more complicated, but nevertheless more helpful, since 20014, you could release pytz twice, once with current schema, second with new pep386 compatible one.
Issue has been brought to us, by pip 1.4: http://
