Since apt in sarge supports this syntax, it shouldn't be a problem for
clients.  If your backports repository is using existing DAK code, or
other software that doesn't cope, then yes, you'd have to fix that.

Also, for the official archive, sarge-proposed-updates should never get
any ~ versions anyway, since it should just get -sargeN increments of
existing sarge version numbers.
