There's one in debbugs CVS, module source, Debbugs/Versions/Dpkg.pm,
translated from dpkg's algorithm as of a couple of years ago. It doesn't
do "~" yet (but then I don't think policy does either).

Alternatively, you could use libapt-pkg-perl, but that's quite hard to
get going on stable.

They don't - I think your mirror is out of date. Both source and binary
are 1.5+E-4 in testing.
