I guess it depends.  If there has been no "stable" release with a
version number, then something like 20070112svn is what I would use for
the upstream version.  Personally, I would stay away from using rev
numbers since they are meaningless to anyone not intimately familiar
with development of that package.

For something that has had stable releases and you are packaging
snapshots between releases, I would do something 1.1.15~20070112svn for
the upstream version.
