Sorting. 1.2.dfsg sorts after 1.2.1 but 1.2+dfsg/1.2-dfsg/1.2dfsg sort
before 1.2.1. See dpkg --compare-versions and debian-policy.

If you're already repacking due to non-free stuff you can remove
whatever else you want to remove.

If you bump the upstream version (by appending dfsg1 or similar) that
means a new upstream tarball.
