I am inclined to reject the patch.

LooseVersion is not meant to be a general utility for all modules; I know it’s used in the wild but projects should define their parsing/comparison function or make up a specific module for that.

If the problem happens from distutils or pip when comparing real distributions that really define version='a' and version='1', then modern setuptools or flit or twine will warn about that.
