Isn't it enough to append something to the version number, similar to the
.ds or .dfsg if the package is intentionally repacked?  I would try avoid
prepending an epoch if possible.

Or just leave the repacked .orig for this version.  If there are no
modifications this should hurt nobody (tough I'm no DD).
