The watch file only checks for version numbers in the filename, not
for checksums of the actual file.
If the project has a versioning control system like GIT, Mercurial,
SVN or GIT, then you could use that instead to keep your package
up-to-date (at least for people who use the Debian source package).

There have been a few bugs in the implementation of trigger support.
Because trigger support is very new, I would try to always use the
latest version available in Debian/unstable, which is currently 0.20.

Of course the package can enter non-free. Sorry if that caused some confusion.
