In any case, the version should be noted (and possibly expired, once
it's oldstable or so) -

So, if this gets implemented, having a field in debian/control would
be unnecessary - any apt front-end showing screenshots would know
exactly where to look for them (and whether to show a warning of "old
screenshot" if needed).
