Compiling packages for slink

I have asked this previously on this list, but since I'm just in the middle
of writing a script to edit the changelog entires for me, I'll ask again;

I am using a whole heap of potato packages that I compile from source on my

What version number convention should I use when compiling potato packages
on slink to ensure that 

  a) these packages wqill get upgraded by apt when the "real" potato
  version is released

  b) the package version number reflects the installed version number in
  some way, ie. if debhelper 2.0.71 is installed, then the version should
  be something like debhelper-2.0.71<something>.

I've always been mad I know I've been mad like the most of us are             
Pretty hard to explain why you're a madman even if you're not mad
