It's a native package which uses non-native version numbers... I think
it should be non-native. Ideally, obtain the upstream .tar ball, make
a diff to the current package and use that as the Debian diff. And
when you build -3, include the new .orig.tar, but it will need another
name as the one currently in the archive. (Ugh, messy.)
