What about when you make a release that fixes a critical bug that only
manifests itself on Windows?  "Why does Windows have a bigger version?"

Two options: bump the subpatch version, or tack a .dx version on when you
need to fix the debian packaging.

You could always just handle Debian changes the same way you would with
any other changes -- make a new upstream release whenever there's a bug big
enough to warrant it, otherwise just put it into the next regular release.

I just had another thought -- make a -1 revision with an empty diff.  Weird,
but I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work...
