As I understand it, only by introducing an epoch in the package version. 
Which, understandably, is often frowned upon as an epoch never goes away and 
looks ugly. (For those caring about the look of version numbers.)

Which is actually sane: you dont want versions to vanish, same versions pop up 
with different content, etc pp.

So, also here: once you put something on the internet, it's out there and you 
cannot get it back.
