This turns out to be a problem in a few cases where package X tests for
package Y version >= Z, like debhelper. I ended up coming up with a variant

  a) if the package version is of the form X.YY-Z, turn it into

  b) if the package version is of the form X.Y.Z, turn it into

b) variats won't upgrade properly but that's only three packages or so of
the 40 I have compiled up.
