Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that packaging was an issue (using an
epoch is ugly but is also a solution).  I also meant that it's easier
for _interested_ users to see an increase in version number rather than
complicated annotations to version number (such as 1.1-release-official).

But most users will simply upgrade the package along with others in the
distribution without even knowing anyway (using aptitude or apt-get).
