Gah, haven't you read everything else I've said?!?

The point is that the extension you've proposed above doesn't change
anything -- the `real' version used within many contexts would still be
the full-with-epoch version.  The fact that there's an additional
`upstream version' field wouldn't change that anymore than the current
ability to strip off the epoch does, so there's little poitn to having
such a field.

.Numeric stability is probably not all that important when you're guessing.
