after sending the mail I was thinking about

package (<< ${source:Upstream-Version}.1)

But + is better than . because it sorts before . (actually + is the
lexicographically smallest character allowed in upstream versions, see
policy 5.6.12).

I wonder about the "1~" though. Isn't

package (<< ${source:Upstream-Version}+)

sufficient (and tighter)? (though it looks a bit weird)

(It's not sufficient if upstream adds a "~", but that's probably
unlikely, and I don't see a way to handle that case.)
