hmm, so what does "installed-version" in the wb-database say for that
package? (What package is it?)

From reading the wanna-build source, it appends "+b?" to the source
version if it finds a binary from that source containing a binary
prefix. So I should not say “version of the installed binary” but
“source version with binNMU suffix appended”.

Maybe just adding the value of installed-version as a column of its own
to /status/ would be the clearest and easiest.
