There's a legal reason for using incubating in the artifcat name[1],
so the tarfile will still have that in there, the spec itself should
be ok as 0.3 though. On graduation we'd need to change our names to
apache-qpid instead of qpid-

I do think we should also have a discussion about changing from
milestones to regular (kernel/apr style[2]) numbering for everything
though,  s/M/0/ essentially. So perhaps apache-qpid-0.4.0 for the next
one maybe?

Messing with Obsoletes: and the like is probably best done sooner and
later from downstreams perspective.
