Correction: rushed the last email, I meant to say that I agree that 93u+m
is not part of the version per se. I just thought that it would be good

Hmm. If the project refers to itself as 93u+m does it make sense to package it as ksh instead of something like ksh93u+m? This reminds me of when debian first packaged openssh as "ssh" because that's what the predecessor package and the binary were called but in the long run renamed it to "openssh". (And with a new name the version/epoch question is moot.)
