I don't know precisely what you mean by "rollback". If you mean
"change our mind about uploading foo new upstream version 3, and go
back to foo upstream version 2", I would not encourage use of an epoch
for that. I would upload foo version "3+really2". This is ugly but
fits much better into everything.
