That wouldn't exactly work, Debian's apt/dpkg basicly relies on
release numbers, how else can it easily and quickly realize that
apache2-2.0.40 is older than apache2-2.0.50?
I was obviously referring to the numbers assigned to releases of the
operating system, not to releases of individual packages.
