Yes, this would be a possible solution.  You could also simplify it by


which is also considered smaller than 3.0-1.  This is a bit more
handsome for reading but finally it does not matter much as long as the
relation of the version numbers is correct.  Whatever you decide you
need to use versionmangling in debian/watch file.  Just tell me what
kind of version numbering you prefer and whether you need help in
adapting debian/watch (which is sometimes a bit tricky and some
experience is helpful in the beginning).

Kind regards
