To explain my version bump:

I rememer a thread on this mailing list starting with [1] that discussed
the issue of reusing the same version number for different uploads to
mentors.debian.net.  Most participants agreed to use a new version
number for each upload.  I like this approach, as m.d.n. is public, thus
somehow the upload to m.d.n already is a form of distribution.  And it
gets quite confusing if there exist different distributions with the
same version number.

Leo, thanks for your upload as well as for your feedback.
