The main reason I chose this when doing the mediawiki packages was to avoid
parsing problems due to the fact that people like to do ls -1 and then
awk/cut out per the first - or . as the package name. I won't say that
their approach is good but it was the most common one I ran into when
looking at doing mediawiki117 or mediawiki1.17

(the other solution was an rpm aware ls like program.. just what everyone
needs to add to ls .deb/.rpm/xxx parsing :).)
