However, the existence of this special case above doesn't prove that
is bad or the wrong way to handle things. It's important to keep
in mind - their package searching and updating lives would be made a
easier if the Version: is as close to upstream whenever possible.
Sure, but you've got to make the balance with what Ville just posted... ok,
I'm probably a bit biased, but just like him, I think that the current
"workaround", which is properly documented and easy to follow is definitely
worth it. Oh, that and "epochs are a nightmare"... just ask jbj, he's
probably seen some of the wildest bug reports ;-)
