git-dpm doesn't have a replacement-character configurable, but different
control sequences for the variable parts of tags supporting different
version schemata, so one can configure "debian%e-%v" for the old style
1:2:3~4 generating tag name "debian1-2_3_4". And "debian/%E%V" would
give "debian/220.127.116.11" and "foobar-%e%v" would give "doobar-1.2_3_4".
The current sid version has some combinations (for the different parts
of the version needed for the different older schemata there are currently
%v %u %e %f %V %U %E) but yet none which replaces anything in versions
with "%", which will make it interesting to create code for it.
