Really? Don't expect me to adhere to that guideline when packaging
something whose upstream uses a letter in the version number.
Instead of complaining, get it fixed.
1) Figure out what upstream version number has a problem.
2) Write a draft to change the guideline with the justification
3) Put it under PackagingDrafts and list it on the PackagingDrafts/ page.
Alternatively to #2, use your justification to convince someone else to
do steps 2+ for you.
