Err, why should katie do that based on the version number? That's very
unlikely, katie can simply see whether the .changes file contains a
source too, even more, katie doesn't care about buildd's, (iirc)
quinn-diff does, and because of the nature of the upload (no new source
attached), everything goes magically alright because there _is_ nothing
to rebuild?

Version numbering w.r.t. (Binary/Source) NMU's is a convention thing,
mandated by policy. The archive scripts do not care other than for
version ordering.
