Ok. This way I've made an universal python module for version comparing.
I'm only hesitating where to insert 'preview' to the existing order:
'alpha' < 'beta' < 'rc' < [no_suffix] = 'final' < [any other suffix]
I think after the alpha, beta and rc rather then before. I'll add it to
Installer as a separate module soon, so everyone will can take it for his own

Sorry, rather <qgis_minimum_version> to meet existing naming style.
