If it is no hasle, I also like to see versions. Look at the problem we
have because Provides: doesn't know about versions. It is better not
to repeat this.
Also gtk had some serious problems about compatibility, until every
version got its own package. Packages with Depends: libgtk1.1 >=1.1.2
didn't run with libgtk1.1-1.1.3 and such. Really a mess. So when
rebuilding a package versioned sourcepackages would be great.
