+really is more often used when one has to upload an older version of
upstream and doesn't want to use an epoch.  As, for instance, in the
following version sequence, where a revert to upstream's 1.0 release was


It's a temporarily ugly way to avoid an epoch if one hopes to be able to
upload 1.2 or something in the future.  I think that's a bit different
from Wooky's use case (for which I'd probably use +pristine).

We don't have great or consistent naming conventions for this stuff.
