Hm, assuming the "b1" means it's beta stuff, I think it would be
better to keep it in the Debian version. Changing the version number
is confusing. Yes, I now it's a pain when it gets out of beta. I
know of 4 solutions:
* pushing for implementation in dpkg of things like alpha/beta stuff
(IIRC there wasn't enough voices last time there was a talk about this)
* heavily using epochs
* add a string like "final" to the version when out of beta (I'll use
this for fweb)
* consider alpha/beta to be based on previous version. I use this for
e2fsprogs 1.12-WIP, which I numbered 1.10-1.12-WIP-<debian_rel>
Note that the 1st one is not incompatible at all with other ones ;)
