I consider such requirement quite suboptimal. 1) you kill history 2) even not 
being officially published, this source package is in the wild and it is a 
bad idea to just reset its versioning (well unless using epoch which would be 
compeltely unneeded) since these users who built & installed first version 
of -1 from mentors won't get the updated one from official mirrors.
