One thing I was always curious about: is there a reason to use such a
deep versioning scheme?

A shorter version number would make package maintainers life a bit
easier when keeping Standards-Version: up to date. For example noticing
4.0 vs 4.1 is way easier than noticing vs

Another nice to have would be having the major version number matching
the target Debian release.
