dgit is supposed to calculate an appropriate -v option automatically
in most cases, although I may need to double-check that it handles
this edge case correctly. What should happen if debian/changelog
contains multiple changelog entries but the package is actually new -
as can happen if a package that wasn't actually in Debian is being
introduced ? The view I've taken is that in this case the .changes
should list only the most recent version.

That is what I would do.
