It should work, note that the field is ${binary:Version} with a colon

I'm going to try again, because I want to improve the packages which I maintain.

Yes, I do not practice what I preach.

This package is involved in an important dependency chain (indeed a
Priority: Important chain), so it was decided to keep the old variable
to make backports easier. We will probably change post-etch to the new
variable though.

My comment was because for doing my watch file I followed your
packages like examples, you know, for having an idea. And I read the
USCAN's man page [0], too.

Thanks :-)
